A school in Middlesbrough has revealed that is launching its own "pop-up foodbank", over fears that the introduction of Universal Credit in the region will leave children hungry as parents are made to wait several weeks for an initial payment.

Universal Credit, which replaces six legacy benefits including tax credits and housing benefit with one single monthly payment, is being roll-out across Teeside despite criticism of the new system and growing evidence that it will leave millions of households in the UK worse off.

Craig Wright, assistant principal of the Outwood Academy, told TeesideLive: “We will be launching a pop-up foodbank to coincide with the roll-out of Universal Credit.

I`m still wondering why this has been allowed to happen Paul while opposition parties condemn it, the UN condemn it and anyone else who can see the injustice of it. Yet here we are still looking down the barrel of hell while these morons in government pretend everything is fine.

I have seen a LOT of Criticism by "The Rich" over the last few Months Comply, Some Rich people who know Nothing about the "Real" World as they sit in there Ivory Towers have been known to say "Food banks are a Lifestyle Choice" Such people are the very ones Voting in the Government who are causing all this Death and Misery to Millions.
I would Love to see the Rich live for 6 Months on what we are supposed to survive on. :angry:

The Channel 5 show `Rich House - Poor House` proves this somewhat. Two families (one rich, one poorer) change households and budgets for a week. The rich ones can`t believe how the other family survive on their weekly allowance after deductions are taken off and usually help them out when they realise their plight. Shame most of society IN that position don`t try to do the same. I think though many want to try, but fear they would be giving money to organisations who may not do enough to get people out of their situations, which can be a difficult when people want to help.
