In the news today - the statistics are that 28% of kids in Cornwall go to school stressed or hungry, and hear phrases at home such 'We dont have enough money for the week' which will affect kids for life, according to charities striving to end child poverty.

Neil admits - he doesn't know much about it...

So we set ourselves a challenge to find out more, and see what it's like to survive on the contents of a foodbox for a week. Not everyone is sympathetic...and there are several viewpoints, including Lisa who decides to join in... have a listen

If you need to know more, find out the locations of foodbanks across Cornwall.

If you'd like to know what to buy to support a foodbank, then here's the sort of items on their shopping lists.
