The Mayor’s Hope Fund is a registered Charity (No 1153630) set up by
the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, to help those suffering in poverty
It is a sad fact that so many people in our city are going hungry because
they cannot afford the cost of a weekly food bill. More and more people
are reliant on the city’s foodbanks, with over 20,000 people calling on
their services last year. In December 2016 alone, 42% of the persons
being fed were children.
Since 2014, the Mayor’s Hope Fund has been supporting Liverpool’s
foodbanks and other charitable organisations to help those on low
income or benefits who are living in poverty. Over £200,000 has been
donated towards helping families and individuals in need.
