Food Banks in Northern Ireland

A house with straw on the floor for warmth and a man whose only cooking appliance is a kettle - this is Christmas in Northern Ireland.

While house prices in Bangor and Moira are well above average, food bank volunteers say "it is another world behind people's doors".
In the last year, food banks gave out almost 33,000 meals in NI. That is about one fifth of the UK total - and that figure looks set to rise.
