Ten people a week rely on food banks

Onchan member demands solution

Ten people a week are requesting food parcels on the Isle of Man - according to Onchan MHK Rob Callister.

He's determined to see government end dependency on food banks as he prepares to question new Chief Minister Howard Quayle.

In the Keys next week, Mr Callister will seek answers on what the new administration plans to do about the problem.

Mr Callister says it's an issue that can't be swept under the rug.
