Food Banks Now Used By 4 MILLION

Trussell Trust Foodbanks

I have always known just how important food banks have become to those that have nowhere else to turn to.
However, I am deeply shocked by just how many people are now being forced to use them.

It is surely a national disgrace that, in one of the wealthiest countries on the planet, so many people are relying on charitable handouts to get by.

These aren’t lazy, feckless, people who are just looking for hand-outs.

Many of them are working people who don’t appear on the Tory government’s radar.

Whilst wealthy people have never had it so good, many people don’t earn enough to cover their living expenses.
