GOVERNMENTS at Westminster and Holyrood should be ashamed by the rise in people relying on food banks, according to Labour leader Kezia Dugdale.
Ms Dugdale visited a food bank in Govan and said action as needed on low wages to prevent working people being unable to fed their families.
Trussell Trust figures show thatover the last six years there were almost 332,000 adults in Scotland given help by a foodbank and almost 157,000 children.
Ms Dugdale said: “It should shame the SNP and the Tories that working families can’t afford to feed themselves.
“A Labour government will end austerity in the UK. Labour will invest in local services, grow the economy and deliver a real living wage of £10 an hour. “
The labour leader visited the foodbank on a campaign visit with Labour candidates Pam Duncan-Glancy for Glasgow North and Faten Hameed for Glasgow Central.
On a visit to a foodbank in Inverness she said: “The growth of foodbanks is a damning indictment of just how damaging Tory austerity has been to communities across Scotland.”
