You may not have thought it, but 60,000 people in Coventry are living on the edge of poverty. Four city centre churches came together in November last year with one idea. Two months later, food was being distributed to dozens of people across the city.Most people who come to foodbanks for emergency food are not homeless. They are families who have hit hard times; people who have been made redundant or are experiencing benefit delay; or they may be refugees or asylum seekers. They are the UK’s hidden hungry.
