I was delighted to visit the Basildon Foodbank recently in Pitsea with my Labour colleague and local councillor Gavin Callaghan to find out more about their work and promote their need for a new premises.foodbank2  The huge rise in the need for foodbanks is a very sad symbol of the state of our country under a failed Tory/Lib Dems government.

However, the need is currently there at this time to stop people from having to decide whether to”heat or eat” and I am glad I can help raise the profile of the work being carried our by Victor and his team.
