Hear Say: With your help, town could have food bank
IT WAS a worrying statistic that three food banks are being set up every week to cope with demand from families finding themselves on the breadline.
The increase in demand for the food banks is not from the homeless, who are, in turn, putting increasing pressure on agencies locally like Harbour Place and Cath and Ken Homewood’s excellent Grimsby Food Kitchen.
The demand is coming from families who are finding that they are struggling so much to pay the bills, that food is being seen as more of a luxury item than a necessity.
I’m not talking about families who prefer to pay for Sky and cigs than fruit and vegetables.
