Soup kitchen set to open food bank in Bradford

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: HOPE: Founder and Board Member of Intouch Foundation food bank, Osman Gondal, with some of the donated food HOPE: Founder and Board Member of Intouch Foundation food bank, Osman Gondal, with some of the donated food

A soup kitchen is expanding to open a food bank with hopes of supporting families reluctant to ask for help.

The InTouch Foundation Food Bank will officially start later this month, but already the organisation has helped people referred to it.

InTouch Foundation founder Osman Gondal hopes that by collecting donations in mosques, South Asian families will be encouraged to speak out and request support.

“What we’ve found is that 90 per cent the people using food bank services across the Bradford area are, generally speaking from white local backgrounds.

“I know there’s a need within the South Asian community and that people from this community aren’t coming forward - we’re conducting research to find out what the cause is.

“We’re going to be working with the mosques and that will be a direct link with ourselves. People can talk to an iman and tell them why they are struggling. It’s taking the mosque back to what it was, which is a community hub.”

Mr Gondal said it was too early to say why South Asian families were less likely to come forward, but suggested it was perhaps cultural and a lack of knowledge about services on offer.

“People don’t know what’s on offer to them, they’d rather contact friends and family,” he said.

The food bank, which will be run entirely by women, has always been part of the plan for the InTouch Foundation which runs weekly soup kitchens in Bradford, Shipley and Keighley.

Mr Gondal said the food bank, which gives out food parcels to last between three and five days, was about more than handouts.

“It’s not just about the pack. It’s about what support we can give to people as well, whether that be healthy eating advice or financial planning - how you can stretch a pound to last a day rather than just going and getting a 99p chicken and chips.

“It’s a more holistic approach.”

People will be referred to the charity service through agencies such as job centres and Bradford Council. The service will be piloted in Bradford working with ten mosques and three schools, with plans of expanding later.

Mr Gondal said InTouch Foundation was a non-political organisation, but he felt welfare changes had led to more people struggling.

“There are some people that are really struggling and don’t know where their next meal will come from,” he said. Earlier this week the InTouch Foundation was contacted about a mother who had completely run out of money and had no idea how she was going to feed her children.

“Within hours we were able to provide her with an emergency food pack.”

Mr Osman said food would be collected weekly from mosques, schools and other centres and stored at Sharing Voices base in Clifton Villas, Bradford.

The organisation is appealing for help to buy pallet racking to store and pack the food for distribution.

Anyone who can help should contact Mr Gondal on 07865 994953.

The more free-food shops there are the more the benefit scroungers will use them. Food banks are a Socialist encouragement to idleness and should be banned by law.

Good to help the poor. More middle class people are falling short in income and god forbid they also fall below the poverty line as that would spell disaster for this country.

I wonder how many people are on some sort of benefit or wage top up such as working tax credit etc. A friend of mine advised me that one will be shocked as to the amount of people just surviving on top up benefits which are paid to those in work . These are not dole dossers, these are people who work and get a top up benefits as their wages are too low.

Any increase in interest charges or inflation would send over 30% of all working people in the poverty line: that's 30% of the 29 million that work....yes they are currently just surviving. This problem is repeated up and down the country and the government is well aware of this issue and I have no idea what they are going to do about it.

It appears foodbanks are here to stay: this shows the world we are no longer a prosperous society, rather we have allowed our country to be run into the ground whilst we inhabitants are busy pointing fingers at EU, Immigration, bankers bailouts, tax breaks for rich, those on benefits street,...time to wake up people as you are the problem: Get up and vote for those who want to improve our NATIONS standard of living.

I don't consider myself a troll. My views are the same as most of my Conservative friends. This Government is engaged in a holy mission to remove state interference from people's lives and make then stand on their own two feet. It is inevitable that there will be casualties amongst the scrounging classes. Poverty is the life-style choice of the lazy. This is something bleeding-heart socialists will never understand.

Before Socialism governments could take the correct decisions. The proper enforcement of the Poor Law by the Conservatives during the Irish potato blight saved a whole nation from becoming dependent on handouts. This was the undoubtedly right thing to do and IDS knows his history. After the next election all benefits will be abolished.

One economic factor that seems to be ignored is the rise in automation in the workplace due to new technology. We are barely at the dawn of this era but already it is clear that we are working toward a much reduced workforce. We are no longer the most efficient or cost effective option. We are nowhere near the most productive. This will inevitably result in more unemployment. Our wages are reducing because there simply isn't the demand for workers. We are subsidising the wage bill for workers and even giving them to employers free of charge. The businesses don't want to contribute to the welfare of those they have no need of so it will be left to an ever decreasing number of taxpayers to help support an ever increasing number of unemployed. We can already see that the taxpayer is uncomfortable with this arrangement. Meanwhile the businesses who no longer require workers due to their more productive automated systems are seeing their profits go up, their wages bill fall resulting in much less revenue going to the Taxman through employee's income tax and the company themselves hides their money offshore to keep it out of the hand of aforementioned Mr Taxman. Is it time some of these mostly automated companies were nationalised so society as a whole feels the benefits of the technological advances that these now redundant workers have helped develop rather than it continue to be just a means for the wealthy business owners to increase their wealth? We can either let the machines set us free and give all a reasonable standard of living or we we can remain enslaved alongside them and increase the desperation for those who have become surplus to requirement.

In the end, if all the jobs are automated, there would be nobody with any money to buy the goods and services and the system would correct itself.

However before that happened there would be enormous social upheaval with the rich expecting the government of the day to keep order. That might prove difficult because the rich, as always, would not be paying their taxes, so the Government would be deeply in debt and running a stringent austerity programme. So no jobs, no benefits and no military to shoot the workers and keep order.

This is where the Tory politics of greed, inequality and unfairness gets you. The means of production should be taken from the rich and given to the workers.

Thanks for that. It would seem that the right wing is doing what they do with most problems that are brought to their attention and going into denial. Of those who are not the majority are quite happy with the idea of domicide with the more compassionate right wingers (of which there are not many) preferring more implementation of eugenics programs and the promotion of homosexuality due to the fact that gay couples cannot reproduce. Ultimately though they will go along with whatever the psychopaths at the top decide no matter how inhumane. Morality doesn't come into the equation. Hitler got to where he did due to such people.

Just another free food shop to add to my list. I kid you not in the last 6 months I have probably only spent £100 on food and thats just the essentials as these free services are providing me with everything else i need.

I realise abusing the system but when they give something for free why should I pay for it when the evil Government reduce my benefits.

I would recommend to anyone to get as much as they can whilst the going is good and they start to limit the amount of handouts they give. Its really easy to get referrals for anyone wondering and some of these handouts dont even ask for them if you plead poverty.

You're a right wing shill pretending to be unemployed and pretending that the problems faced by many in Bradford are just a joke.

A shill is someone who pretends to be something they are not in order to give a false impression. Ie if I were to want to discredit the Tories it would be very easy for me to set up an account pretending to be one and spout the most vile and outrageous bigotry and imply that that was the attitude of all Tories. The right wing wishes to portray the poor as scroungers who want something for nothing and will "abuse the system" whenever they can which is what you claim to do. You are either a liar claiming to be something you're not or your an embarrassment and one of the very small minority that the right wing focus their finger pointing on to justify their attacks on everyone else. I believe I was right first time.
