Not long ago, few people had heard of a food bank. In 2008/09, around 25,000 people received three days of emergency food from food banks run by the charity the Trussell Trust. In 2020/21 that had risen to more than 2.5 million. And with the cost of food and energy rising sharply this year, food banks are frequently in the news. Also in the news recently was the bad guy of supermarket marketing, the Buy One Get One Free deal (or BOGOF). It’s time the two walked down the aisle together.
