"So whether you are looking for an intro to DIY, a new family recipe or a bit of help understanding financial jargon; TikTok offers you the content you need, to make life a little bit easier."
Alongside this event, the TikTok UK team and TiKTok creators, will be heading out into their local community to volunteer with the Lifeafterhummus, Community Benefit Society, to help raise awareness and support those who need it most.

IFAN calls for governments and national and local partnerships to prioritise a cash first approach to food insecurity and to work together to address the root causes of food insecurity and poverty.
