Praise for work of Trussell Trust

This week I made a visit to Newport Foodbank at Christchurch Centre. Newport Foodbank is one of 400 Trussell Trust food banks operating across the UK providing emergency food to families and individuals experiencing a crisis.

I’m always inspired by people’s generosity to those in need; from the amount of food donated by the public to the hard work of the volunteers.

Five years ago, Foodbanks were a rarity. That is not the case today. I am concerned about the number of people including families with young children who have no option but to use Foodbanks. While they can be a real lifeline for those in crisis it doesn't solve the problem. With Tory government cuts to welfare benefits and tax credits - the situation is only likely to get worse. More must be done to help those families struggling.
