WHAT WE ARE DOING
Together we agree that there is no place for hunger in the UK. Nobody should be forced to use a foodbank, but many are. Together we aim to help by promoting donations to collection points across the UK for dispute resolution professionals (and anyone else who wants to) to donate to their local foodbank. Our full list of supporters is shown below

No place for hunger
The idea for fooDResolution came from founder Gregory Hunt, who says:
I noticed the increasing need for foodbanks throughout the country. It really angers me that foodbanks are needed in this country and that there are so many and that organisers are so desperate for donations.
I made my first donation at the Fans Supporting Foodbanks collection at Anfield in Liverpool in December before the Merseyside derby. I felt angry as my son and I handed over a couple of shopping bags full of simple staple foods like pasta, tea, sanitary items and tinned meats. I was angry that in 2018 (as it was) we needed to do this in the UK.
After we donated at Anfield, it made me wonder what the dispute resolution community could achieve if we set up collection points across the country. After all, the efforts in Liverpool that day were started by two groups of football fans with passion but with very little resource, and without the network of connections that we have in our community.
So here we are, just under three months later and a small but growing group of us from different parts of the dispute resolution community have mobilised collection points in several towns and cities across the UK.
We now call on you – the much wider dispute resolution community - to make a difference. However and wherever you fit in to the dispute resolution spectrum - we need you to help support the needy in your local community.
We have already arranged support in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Taunton and Teesside. This isn’t enough though, we are looking for more support and together we can make a huge difference.
We encourage you to donate locally when dates are added – if there is nowhere local to you, we encourage you to contact us to get involved and be the fooDResolution point of contact for your area.
To find out what we expect from you as a point of contact please email us.
If you are involved in dispute resolution at any level for any business big or small this is aimed at you – let’s rise to the challenge and make a real difference. There really is no room for hunger in our society.
PUT DOWN YOUR COFFEE
For the price of a latte, mocha or a cappuccino at your local coffee shop you could supply a bag of shopping to your local foodbank. Just one bag would make a huge difference to someone who is desperate for your help
IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT FOOD
Donating to a foodbank isn't all about food. People who use foodbanks desperately need toiletries, sanitary items and household items like washing up liquid
