Call to end benefits freeze as record numbers turn to foodbanks

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 24, 2018 10:00 am

The UK Government has been urged to immediately end the cruel freeze on Child Benefit, as new figures reveal record numbers of hungry families are turning to foodbanks to help put food on the table.

Trussell Trust foodbanks handed out a record 1,332,952 three day emergency food supplies between April 1, 2017 and March 31 this year, 13 per cent higher than the previous twelve months. The latest figures show that families with children make up over half of foodbank users, and were more likely to be in work than households without children who needed similar help.
