Rising cost of food will push more families to food banks, say charities

The Independent says Labour has warned of a “cost of living tsunami” as families face price rises of up to 50 per cent on everyday grocery items.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that the cheapest pasta rose by 50 per cent in the 12 months to April, while the average price of bread, minced beef, rice and crisps increased by more than 15 per cent.

Charities say the increase will see more of the poorest families turn to food banks as households struggle with the brunt of the cost of living crisis, which has driven up energy bills, rent prices and food costs.
