“My benefits were stopped after I came out of hospital”: The story of a food bank user
A food bank user answers the question “I came to the Foodbank today because…”:
My benefits were stopped after coming out of hospital. I have had to reapply for benefits. I didn’t receive the letter informing me that my benefits were stopping as it was sent to the wrong address. I wont get any money for six weeks. I was in hospital having a tumour removed so my immune system is very low. I now have a chest infection and not having food to eat is affecting my health.
