Mum-of-two Jennifer McDonald had to turn to a foodbank last Friday because she didn't have enough money to buy food for the weekend.

The 31-year-old, from Crosby, had her benefits stopped for three months in December after she missed an appointment at the job centre because she was looking after her daughter who had been sent home from school ill.

She is given a hardship allowance of £41 a week from the government but by the time she has paid her energy bills there is little left for food.

Jennifer, whose children stay with their dad during the week and with her at weekends, first visited a foodbank in January.

Speaking to the Sunday ECHO at the Crosby Area Foodbank at Waterloo Town Hall, she said: “I just didn’t know what I was going to do next. It’s amazing. Since I’ve found out about this it’s really saved my life. Imagine not being able to feed your kids, this is a huge support.”

Foodbanks are intended to be a one-off solution but Jennifer has been struggling so much since her benefits were sanctioned that she had been forced to use them six times this year.

But the mum has now turned a corner and has secured a job as a chef which she will start as soon as her CRB check is cleared.

Jennifer says it is thanks to the foodbank that she has been able to do this.
