There is an increasing need across the diocese for the kind of support which Food Banks can bring…redundancy, illness, the rising cost of basic food items, domestic violence, debt, family breakdown, fuel bills, benefit changes and delays are just some of the reasons people are going hungry… Most food banks are there to provide short term support for people in crisis and are accessed via a voucher or referral system…
