Scottish foodbank use has risen again to record levels, according to new figures published by the Trussell Trust.

The Trust’s 52 Scottish foodbanks provided 145,865 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis – including 47,955 for children – during the 2016/17 financial year. This is a nine per cent increase on the year before.
