Benefit delays and changes remain the biggest cause of foodbank use. However, here is an example of one of the situations where our help was needed.

Kane and his wife Chelsea were both working professionals, but when his mental health deteriorated and there were complications with her pregnancy, they were both temporarily unable to work. Kane said: 


"We never expected to need a foodbank, but our lives completely changed in two months. Just five minutes to breathe can really make all the difference, that's why foodbanks are such a lifeline."
