Foodbank Investigation Launched by Bishop
7:01am 6th March 2014
There is a warning the government can not ignore the rise of foodbanks in Cornwall.
Last year thousands turned to them for help in places like Bude, Callington, Launceston, Newquay and Helston.
Now the Bishop of Truro is helping lead a parliamentary investigation into why numbers are shooting up.
James Gregson has had to rely on the service between jobs in Camborne. He said: "When I struggled with not having money from the Jobcentre and going through hard times, trying to survive really, they've just been really helpful.
"Sometimes I've just come here and they've sat me down with a cup of tea and a sandwich.
"I don't know what situation I would be in right now if it wasn't for this lot.
"It makes me feel happy knowing there is someone helping people like us that haven't got any money or any food."
Jacquie White is in charge of the foodbank in Wadebridge. She told Pirate FM: "It is more than I would ever have dreamed or imagined to be honest with you. We get it all the time. People are saying, 'I lasted this long, I just can't last any longer.'
"Or they're feeding their children and then walking out of the door and going into the garden for a little while - coming back when their children have eaten."7:01am 6th March 2014
