“I’ve just analysed the 3 month totals of food distributed. We have gone up every 3 month period. We are distributing twice as much food at the present as we did this time last year. Looking at he figures for last Friday we distributed 523 kg from 30 vouchers ( a record for the day) to 81 individuals. For the whole week 677 kg 42 vouchers 103 individuals). Our estimate for food to be distributed in 2013/2014 was originally 24 tons, this went up to 27 at the half year point. It may go higher.”
