Autumn is the season of mellow fruitfulness and party political conferences.
But if your cupboard is bare and your bank account empty there is nothing mellow or fruitful about it. This is true poverty; this is the situation of many working families in Suffolk.
No matter what politicians, of any party, may announce as a grand cure for this problem there will be no change felt in these family homes for many months. Their need is at the end of the week and the food bank is the only place they can go to at the end of the week.
You can help them now by donating to your local food bank, FIND – Families In Need. Check out their home page http://www.findipswich.org.uk/
There are collection boxes in all the Carlford Churches from which there are regular deliveries to FIND.
