Bay Food Bank Increase in users reported after tumultuous year

A local food bank has seen an increase in the number of people accessing it after a difficult year for the region.

The Bay Food Bank, located in the Meadow Well estate in North Shields, delivered parcels to more than 6500 people this year, with an increased demand in the run up to Christmas.
The increase in demand for food banks comes after a recent report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation showed an increase in poverty, which says that thousands of people all over the country are struggling to make ends meet.
