Food banks call for more financial support

Food banks across the Channel Islands are seeking extra financial support amid increasing demand.

Guernsey Welfare Service said its shelves were running low on essentials such as tinned goods as islanders grapple with rising food prices and household bills.

Sue Le Friec, the charity's welfare co-ordinator, said the extra demand meant its annual grant from the Committee for Employment and Social Security was no longer "covering the costs it used to".

Caritas Jersey chief executive Patrick Lynch said demand had "gone up exponentially" at its St Vincent de Paul food bank.
