Our Mission

Chronic hunger in the UK is not inevitable. With collective action and unity, we can combat hunger once and for all.

Humdum UK was founded with one goal in mind; to ensure nobody in our community faces food poverty. We distribute over 300 nutritionally balanced meals a day and provide support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We believe nobody should go a day feeling hungry; however, the sad thing is many people do.

Get involved today and be part of a growing team of volunteers who are on a mission to help those in need.
