REPOST from October 2014
Last week - Neil and Tina set themselves a challenge to find out more about foodbanks and how we can all help. Today, a listener tells Neil and Tina just what it's like to have to use a food bank. They played an excerpt of the interview on air, but the full interview is available for you to listen to here.
We've done our shopping and it cost about £30 for a family box of food. Now the challenge is for Neil and Tina plus her kids to experience what it's like to survive on foodbox rations.
Tina's main worries are no bread, eggs or fresh veg or fruit - plus UHT milk. But this is what it's like.
If you want to donate then click the links and the foodbanks always need packets of mashed potato, tins of meat, tins of veg, tins of soup, tins of fruit, plus long-life juices.
If you are affected at all and need more information, read our previous blog post here.
Thank you for all your messages - good and bad - we appreciate them all - and hope that we've informed you a little along the way.

We caught up with Wayne Paternotte from St Ives, the waiter from the Chy-an-Albany Hotel.
It seems that his Slob to Heartthrob transformation has been more than just skin deep.
Still dressed in his David Parish Menswear jacket with shirt and jeans, Wayne was looking 'dapper' and we found just what it's like to take a ride in a Must-Hire Mustang with Sharon and all about the luxurious couples retreat One4Two in Bude.
It seems that after stomach surgery, Wayne is going to give his remaining liposuction prize from Zest4Beauty to his partner Georgina so we shall follow her progress.
After a chap suffered injury playing Candy Crush non-stop for 6 weeks, we asked about embarrassing injuries... Neil once cracked his head open jumping up under a door frame - and Tina broke a toe wearing heels at a military dinner night...here's a selection of your stories:

At bedtime last night, Georgie grabbed her daddy's face and said "Goodbye Daddy"
Neil gently corrected her saying "you mean, Goodnight Daddy"
She replied firmly "No, Goodbye Daddy" EEEKKKK
You had your so many of your own stories ...
Theresa, Plymouth text My sister and I were discussing her upcoming 40th birthday, I said to my 5 yr old niece who was listening "mummy's 40 this year" to which she replied "mummy you're old" but that wasn't the worst of it, she then said "so you'll be 40, then 100 and then you'll be dead!" That's kids for you !
Here are some of the callers
