Letter to the editor | Rise in foodbank use

Dear Editor,

 

Thank you for headlining the shocking fact that low income, the high cost of living and the five week wait for universal credit has made the figures for Chichester district foodbank rise by a third during the first six months of this year. (Foodbank users up by a third – November 22).

 

Unfortunately, although the percentage increase is bad enough, your report does not inform readers of the scale of the problem. We are unable to ascertain from a percentage increase whether the usage rose from 10 to 13 or from 100 to 133.

 

Could you please provide more details?

 

Kind regards,
Vincent Porter
Highland Road
