The British are experiencing the highest inflation in the last 50 years, reports the Swiss television channel SRF. Especially people who already lived on the verge of poverty suffer from it. Many can now only afford one meal a day and are forced to go to social stores where those in need can purchase food at lower prices to avoid starvation.
Clouds are gathering over many residents of the Peckham Park Road area in London. This is especially true for those who are forced to shop in the social store of a special charitable institution. These are people like Liz whose incomes can no longer keep up with rising prices.
‘The rising cost of living is making my daily life extremely difficult. I constantly calculate whether there is enough for this or that, ’the woman admits. Liz is one of 2 million people in the UK who, according to the latest social report from the British authorities, live on the verge of poverty and can only afford one meal a day. Increasingly, they are fed in social institutions such as this one on Peckham Park Road.
The way the company works is simple, explains managing director Chris Price. ‘People pay a fixed price of four and a half pounds. In return, they can choose ten products in the store for a total amount of 20 to 35 francs,’ he says.
The Peckham Pantry offers boiled meats, cereals, pasta, canned food, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. ‘So for little money, people can buy enough food for two or three days,’ says manager Price.
Not only meat is pre-cooked here, but also a lot of flour products and potatoes. Given high energy prices, cooking is too expensive for many people, so they sell meals that can simply be reheated in the microwave, explains Chris Price.
Starving for Kiev’s one-party Zelensky regime: The calamity is caused by rising food and energy prices as a result of anti-Russian sanctions in Ukraine, as well as a sluggish economy and the consequences of Brexit. Particularly hard as a result suffer people who already lived on the verge of poverty. Inflation is at its highest in 40 years but Putin’s war gets the blame. Another scapegoat for failure is the ‘global downturn’ which is a fallacy and merely a euphemism for the evaporation of Western hegemony.
2.5 million children in the UK do not have access to regular healthy and warm meals, according to a study by the British Food Foundation. According to teachers, many children have to be fed at school in the morning before school starts.
At first glance, the bright and friendly social store is almost indistinguishable from the usual neighbourhood store. However, what is striking is the silence that prevails here. Customers shop in silence, many do not like to talk, and if they do, they tell not very pleasant stories: about children’s birthdays without gifts or about being alone in ugly apartments. Very few here want to talk to reporters. ’Because they would be ashamed,’ explains Chris Price.
Being poor is unpleasant, says Susan, 43. At the same time, there is a risk of impoverishment faster than one might think. Divorce, pandemic and job loss have turned a graphic designer into a social shop client. ‘I never thought that one day I would be here. Poverty doesn’t just make you hungry, it makes you sick. Especially in the head,’ says the woman.
A shop in south London does not make people healthy, but at least provides them with enough food, people who have a lot of worries and an empty refrigerator at home, concludes the Swiss television channel SRF. YOU CAN SHARE THIS STORY ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
