Hunger in the UK

A few months ago, we were lucky enough to be visited by Margaret Rooney, who lives in London, England. Margaret volunteers at her local food bank, the Islington Foodbank, part of the The Trussell Trust, which serves the UK and Bulgaria.

According to The Trussell Trust, nearly 13 million people in the UK live below the poverty line. Islington Foodbank serves several hundred people annually and hopes to continue growing.
