As suspected, the claim in this morning’s Sun that can people can obtain “restaurant tokens” from food banks turns out to be borderline lies. An informed source told Scrapbook:
“It’s simply not Trussell Trust policy to supply restaurant tokens. It’s possible that a handful of food banks may have partnered with soup kitchens or social enterprises to offer something along those lines but this wouldn’t be available to the vast, vast majority of food bank users.”
Remember those ‘free TVs for asylum seekers’?
