(Updated 12:15pm 16th May 2012)
There is a warning families in Cornwall are facing their worst year yet.
Pirate FM has learnt almost one in five children in the Duchy is living in poverty.
Cuts and the rising cost of living are being blamed.
Reverend Mike Firbank has helped hundreds in Camborne: "Through our foodbank centres we're finding increasing numbers of middle class people coming, sometimes crying, because they've never had to ask for help before. Recently I'm giving out foodbank cheques to dads who have not eaten for days because they want the rest of their family to eat.
"We need more people out there to see themselves as the solution to their own problems, to join with us in helping other people and we also need government to start listening: Is it right to be cutting so much so quickly?"12:15pm 16th May 2012
