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.
