4,100 emergency food parcels given to local people in last year
Salisbury #Foodbank provided 4,100 three day emergency food parcels to local people between April 2018 to March 2019. Of this number, 1,369 went to children.
Salisbury Foodbank is backing calls from the @TrussellTrust to ensure the benefits system is able to protect people from poverty.
The figures from @SalisburyFoodbank are a 19% increase on the same period last year. The charity believes the local increase is due to people struggling with continued issues with benefit payments; issues with Universal Credit such as the five-week wait and insecure work.
