I’ve got mixed feelings about this report as it’s the Salvation Army providing the food parcels and one is led to ask whether those doing the handing-out are being forced to do so under the rules of Workfare.
That being said, there’s no denying the validity of the message: With summer here, pressure on food banks will increase and those who have profited from the past few years have an obligation to help those who have suffered. Hopefully they’ll understand that – but I doubt it.
