Published Figures Shows Harsh Truth Of “Poverty Epidemic”

The Gowanbank Hub and Crisis support service in greater Pollok have today published the organization’s statistics in relation to its emergency food provision.

The report by the crisis support charity also alludes to the fact that the influx of individuals and families reliance on foodbanks within the last months is a result of an over 4% increase in inflation on everyday essential items such as bread, milk, sugar, eggs not to mention the harsh reality of the increase in energy prices that is currently affecting the pockets of thousands of people across the country.

A spokesperson for the charity said:

“With the publishing of these figures, I hope that it shows the harsh reality of food inequity across our community.”

“There are honestly tens of thousands of people suffering without any form of financial support and living on the breadline, wondering how they are going to survive the next week. Or wondering how they are going to support their family their children. “

“I am even aware of some families who have lost family members as a result of suicide caused by the poverty epidemic we are all living in.”

Coincidentally these figures are realsed just days after, politicians who earn over 40k – 50k per year are debating the driving factors of the need for food banks and even worse, whether PM Boris did or didn’t have a party. Those politicians must do something now to protect our most vulnerable people now.”

The charity accuses the a number SNP MPs of “being missing in action” after SNP MP’s failed to vote on the £400 energy increases that will leave thousands of all ready struggling families near destitute.

A 61 year old , retired service user who dose not wish to me named said:

“Politicians , are only looking out for themselves.”

Billy Coull Cheif Executive Officer of The Pollok Based Chairty said:

Thérèse Coffey
Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

“I know there are some very good MP’s out there who think they are doing the right thing by quizzing sectary of state for DWP Theresa Coffey about food poverty issues. However, Could this MP not work with small local grassroots originations like The Gowanbank Hub and Crisis Support Center to work towards eradicating this posisonous disease sweeping our community.”
