Yes you are, as I asked what are they supposed to do other than go to food banks (which is what this thread is about).

and clearly the job centre isn't learning from it considering that successful appeals are at an all time high.
Try not to get into the situation where they need to use food banks.

There's a whole host of reasons why people need to use food banks.

Sanctions are one of many. Access to free food is another. Inability to budget is another. Charities trying to address the record high waste levels of food waste in the supply chain is another.

But how are those wrongly sanctioned supposed to do that? My god you are frustrating you dance around conversations like it's nobodies business.

The two main reasons stated for people needing to use food banks was sanctions (which I think was 18%) and benefit delays which if I recall correctly was a third of the statistics.

So are you saying that every food bank user has been incorrectly sanctioned?

So we're upto say 50% of foodbank users are linked to delays/cuts with their benefits.

You've claimed that a 1/3 of foodbank users are down to delays in benefits plus the other 18% ( it's actually lower than that, just under 15%) of people on sanctions. That's pretty much 50%

Yes I said that, not that every single person who uses a food bank has been wrongly sanctioned.

Now we're getting somewhere.

So what percentage of foodbank users do you think have been incorrectly sanctioned.

What percentage if foodbank users have been legitimately sanctioned?

What percentage of foodbank users do you think are just taking advantage of the situation?

Why are foodbanks popping up in countries like Norway that have lucrative benefits systems?

Why are family and friends not helping foodbank users out?

It doesn't matter what percentage I think, my guess will either be wrong or right so there is no point in me saying. The true statistics are all that matter.

I have no idea about norway

As for family and friends, not everyone has them or those who can or will help.

Not everybody has family and friends but most do. You see this is my problem. No matter how well intended your opinion is, more people will take advantage of the situation because generally people like something for nothing.

Try answering this question.

Why should I be expected to pay more in taxes to bailout others who has in most cases the same opportunities as me?

Here's an article you may like to read from a foodbanks perspective.
