This is how many emergency 3 day food parcels have been given out by @trusselltrust food banks in 6 months. Please forget the idea that these hundreds of thousands of people are ‘benefit thieves’. The numbers you see here include working British citizens, women on maternity leave, the elderly whose pensions have been cut, the disabled whose help has been cut, men and women and young people fresh out of school working on multiple zero hours contracts, those suffering with mental health issues who live in isolation, teachers, nurses, firefighters, ex-military, university educated men and women.
The UK is the 5th richest economy in the world. This is not about people being lazy or scrounging. It is about people unable to keep their head’s above water because of zero hour contracts, low minimum wage, pension access age being pushed up, soaring house prices, landlords living by their own rules, rising prices of EVERYTHING, the state takin more for their own pockets and making it as painful as they possibly can for anyone in need. Extortion, extortion, extortion.
All major supermarkets have donation trolleys if you want to donate and you can find your local food bank at www.trussell.org By doing so you are easing the lives of many and supporting an extraordinarily important charity #stopukhunger ♥️🇬🇧 And P.S The money lost to benefit fraud in the UK is nothing, NOTHING in comparison to the money lost to tax avoidance by the super rich. They’re the ones stealing all your money mate. #paradisepapers 🎩💩
