Scale of UK food bank use continues to grow

Geoff Riley

10th February 2016

New data from the Trussell Trust finds that the number of people given emergency food help has continued to grow with over 1 million people receiving assistance in 2014-15 compared to 128,000 in 2011-12. The main reason for referral is delays in receiving welfare benefits an changes to benefit entitlement. But persistent low household income and meagre savings are the fundamental root causes.
