Do Britons really need food-giving charities? Oh, come on. Britons may have plenty of problems but starvation is not nearly in the top ten.
Food banks do more harm than good. They have never saved anybody from the death of starvation, but may contribute to many premature deaths from obesity-related diseases. As it is obvious from the statistics, children from the poorest families are most vulnerable.
Let's ban food banks. If for nothing else, then for the benefit of the kids from poor families.
