Tory darling Jacob Rees-Mogg has described the increased use of food banks as an “uplifting” example of charity – while food banks are warning that they cannot cater for everybody coming to them and people are starving.

The Camborne Pool and Redruth foodbank, which helps low-income households in one of the most deprived regions in the country, hands out 10,000 meals to hard-up households every month.

Donovan Gardner, who works at the foodbank, says he is often struck by the severe plight faced by families who are struggling to afford food for their children.

Mr Gardner said: “We know there are children out there starving and that really does hurt.
