The Food Bank

On the back of my last blog “The Socialisation of Medicine”, which deals with bringing health issues out of institutions and back into the community, The Green Man Herbal Apothecary is now hosting as a Food Bank Collection Point for the Malvern Hills area.

There is too often a misconception as to the type of people needing to use a food bank. The truth of the matter is that such a need greatly reflects on the poor state of our society rather than on the individuals using the service.
As is often said, most of us are two pay cheques away from living on the street and going hungry. Those who require the food bank may do so due to low income, debt, job loss, illness, benefit changes as well as other reasons.
The idea that many find themselves in financial difficulty because of irresponsible spending gained clarity for me a number of months ago while listening to the Andrew Easton show on Hereford and Worcester radio. A guest he had on the show helps people in debt to organise their expenses and income. He said that about 10 or 15 years ago many of the people he helped were in their dire position because of misspending on luxury goods. Now he finds this is no longer the case and that many of the people are finding themselves in trouble paying their regular bills due to insufficient income.

For those of you wishing to contribute to the food bank you can drop non-perishable items off at the Apothecary during my Drop in Hours.
Tue-Wed 12-3
Thursday 8-4
Friday 8-5

Saturday 12-2

To see what items are in most need you can go to the Food Bank website at
