  1. food banks

    I have had to use the local food bank twice this year. You have to go to CAB and be assessed by one of their auditors, you can only attend twice in 6 months or you will be reassessed. Yes I do have a mobile phone, but that is my only contact, I do not have Internet at home, (I am using a public computer), the food bank in Hastings is on the edge of town, those who wish to Google map it, it is opposite the Conquest Hospital, and only open on a Friday between 1300-1500. Yes there are a few scroungers there, but Universal Credit, and a higher than average unemployment rate means it is a very busy unit. I only used the Food Bank because I had no edible food, no money in the bank, and my benefits were not due for another 7 days. A lot of people when they donate to a food bank tend to buy something really cheap (a tin of "Basics" beans, eg), you don't use the FB if you want a luxurious dinner. Its all tinned or jars, nothing fresh.

    round at my ex-s for my daughters 9th birthday (I can't believe I typed that statement) it only seems like last week. So I brought my computer up with me, so I could do a job search, but after an hour of searching the usual sites & applied for 10 jobs that I'm not qualified for, I've given up and come on here again.
