Community Larder report : January 2020
2019 was a record year. 28% more parcels were given out; 41% more people needed to be fed, an increase in the proportion of families and dependents over the previous average - after the rounded average of previous years had been about the same!!
The reason for the increased need is unclear; it is easy to blame "Universal Credit" which has become a quick answer to cover all sorts of problems. The delay in Universal Credit really is a serious problem, but there are also troubles caused by drink, drugs, gambling, bad budgeting, mental health and abusive relationships!
