The cost of living crisis in the UK, withrising costs and falling wages, has gotten so bad to the point that people are eating pet food and heating up their meals on their radiators.
In a report from BBC Wales, Mark Seed, a community worker who heads The Pantry, a community food project in Cardiff, wants people in struggling households to be given the support they need, even if it isn't in areas associated with poverty.
"I'm still shocked by the fact that we have people who are eating pet food," he told the outlet before noting that people try to warm their meals "on a radiator or a candle."
He also explained that people don't have enough money to afford the essentials everyone should have access to.
The Pantry is a Community Trust-funded facility that has a goal to reduce food poverty in Cardiff.
