Hear how a food bank works

26 April 2012 Last updated at 14:52 BST

One of the biggest food bank charities in the UK say it's seen a big rise in people turning to them because they can't afford to eat.

The Trussell Trust provides parcels of 'non-perishables' - things like tinned vegetables, dried pasta and long-life milk.

It comes just a day after the British economy went into its first double dip recession since the 1970s.

Hear from 25-year-old Bethan Lloyd who works for the charity. She runs a food bank in Lincoln.
