I visited the Dundee Foodbank at Menzieshill Parish Church on Tuesday along with Jim McGovern MP    

Foodbanks provide an essential service to the very many people in this country who, through no fault of their own, are finding it harder to feed themselves and their families because of low-level income, cuts in spending on social security,  and rising prices.

Trussell Trust foodbanks supply a minimum of three days emergency food supplies and support to these people who are in financial difficulties that require help to put food on the family table.

I pay tribute to the members of the public who donate items of food to the foodbank, to the members of staff and volunteers who administer it, and to the social workers and other front-line staff who help to identify those who require assistance as they struggle to pay bills and pay for food through a period of crisis.
