DON'T FORGET THE LOCAL COLLECTION POINTS IN MOST LOCAL SUPERMARKETS.

100,000+ OF OUR FELLOW FAMILY / KINSHIP CARERS HAD TO RESORT TO A FOOD BANK IN THE LAST CALENDER YEAR.

CHILDREN ... MANY LOCAL FOOD BANKS ARE ALSO ACCEPTING TOYS AND CLOTHING.


( 130.000 or so considered " Homeless " for Christmas 2018 ... and the numbers not known to be homeless ? )



Call it what you like ... the aftermath of a natural disaster ?

Trouble is , this is a man / woman made disaster ... called AUSTERITY !
