Families are going cold and hungry!
There is an increasing number of people who have never before had to ask for help to put food on the table and a roof over their heads.
Families who up until recently were self-sufficient, are now struggling to make ends meet. Often due to the loss of work or loss of hours.
The cost of food is soaring, rents are increasing and bills can’t be paid.
