This is in partnership with FOODSHARE . Tesco in addition will give a 20% money donation on all food donated which could be substantial.
Many people are struggling due to Tory benefit cuts which are because of Austerity policies. People on benefits in Barnet are currently waiting between 8 and 16 weeks without any money before their claims are even processed ( We rang the council who confirmed this to us and we rang the Job Centre) Most people who dont claim benefits are not even aware of this scandal in Barnet. Could you survive and feed your family with no income for up to 4 months ? Exactly !! This is why projects like this really matter. Just a few tins or a whole basket of goods could help a family with children get a decent meal while they wait for benefits. Many families on benefits are victims of crime and all types of abuse. They need our help.
