#foodbank @CitizensAdvice looks at reasons for increased usage

The single biggest reason why people came for food was delays to benefit payments. The number of clients who had a delay in payment increased by 30% between March and September.

The second largest reason for food need was benefits being sanctioned for non-compliance with benefit rules.

Despite all the strains on household incomes, most people coming to us in need of food were doing so because they had no money coming in at all.

Great article from the CAB here.
