Hunger in Britain

So we all know about hunger, but what do we really know about the people going hungry and what they do to survive? I reblogged this from Dear Kitty. Some Blog. Tonight I was going to talk about penises (literally, erection dysfunctions and so on) but I think is better food for thought. I am interested in social welfare issues in the UK, and would like to learn more about it. The thing is, you think the video is going all Michael Moore on you…but it’s not! The narrator takes a twist at the end when he talks about loopholes in the food bank system. My only unresolved question is what about the Black woman’s case (she has 5 kids and her husband is in school) for getting assistance, was is rectified?

“I won’t take what I don’t eat,” says Dave, seemingly putting back as much as had been loaded into three carrier bags for him to take away from the Eastbournefood bank.

A former soldier, Dave has hit hard times. He’s unemployed and has lost his partner.

He has had alcohol problems since leaving the army 10 years ago. This is the second time he has been to the food bank to receive his three days of food supplies.

“I’ll only take what I’m going to use, I feel guilty handing it back,” he says with slight embarrassment.

On another chair in the reception area is Maki, who has come for the first time accompanied by one of his three children.

He has had his benefits stopped.
