John Mulholland, Trustee and Warehouse Manager at St Albans & District Foodbank, explains to Rob Pearman how the service works, how much it has increased over recent years (it now has six distribution points), and how the combination of increasing prices, the ending of the Covid uptick to Universal Credit and of the furlough scheme, plus announced increases in National Insurance may add to local requests for assistance – just at a time when the Foodbank has to move out of its current premises and find a new distribution warehouse by mid-November.  If you know of a suitable site, please contact warehouse@stalbans.foodbank.org.uk urgently.
