Food Banks result from Tory Austerity - Brady
Commenting on the announcement of the closure of Newry Foodbank, Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady said,
“I am am extremely concerned that the Newry Foodbank can no longer continue providing food to those who need it in our community.
“Foodbanks and the poverty behind them should not exist.
“However poverty and hunger do continue, compounded by relentless Tory austerity and welfare cuts. Even working a full time job doesn’t guarantee that people can afford basic necessities such as food.
“This is especially worrying at this time of the year coming into the winter, people need food security.
