Currently 13 million people in the UK live below the poverty line. In 2011-12, food banks fed 128, 687 people. This year this number is expected to rise beyond 230, 000, as more people are hit by cuts and benefit changes.
From breakfast to rent to lunch to winter coats to dinner, the State footed the bill. So I realise what it means when David Cameron talks about cutting benefits, and it makes my stomach feel cold.
