Last week marked National Food Bank Day, and it's a sad indictment of our society that such a day is needed.
The UK is one of the richest countries in the world, yet food bank workers are so understaffed and burnt out that they need mental health support just to help those who can't afford food.
"They typically arrive keen to make a difference but can be demoralised by the heartbreaking plight of clients, the relentless pace of work and the realisation that clients can be locked into food bank reliance by the inadequate state benefits system."
Let's hope that they get the help they need and can continue making such an important difference in people's lives: https://bit.ly/460euFI
