Covid-19: Concerns about number of foodbanks

From Morning Report, 6:09 am on 20 August 2020

The head of Mangere Budgeting Services is concerned about the number of foodbanks which have sprung up in Auckland since the last lockdown.

Thousands of people have been using community food banks since the city went back into Alert Level 3.

Darryl Evans says rather than more and more such services popping up, they should pool their resources to provide the best possible help to those in need.

He spoke to our reporter Matthew Theunissen.
