Your leftover non-perishable food could stop a UK family going hungry. The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network will be collecting any unopened non-perishable food extras at WOMAD and using them in Foodboxes to feed the 'hidden hungry' around the UK. There is over 13 million people living below the poverty line in the UK and in a crisis, the gift of food can make a real difference.
Look out for volunteers collecting in the campsites on Monday or bring donations to the recycling centre, next to San Fran's Disco Bar.
