I live in an affluent area , two of our local foodbanks deliver because so many have no transport as it is a very widely laid out area.

Particularly the elderly poor are helped with a free lunch once a week as well.

the Salvation Army lay on a Christmas Day do as well.

People hide poverty , pride has a cost.

Re: 2016 - the good things

Well put sir
People forget that not all poor for example are unemployed. Many who would use our food bank are "working poor"- hard grafters who cannot make ends meet on the disgracefully low wages they get, yet they have the dignity and self esteem to try to survive by working rather than benefits
