The global credit crunch is being blamed for an escalating demand for help from a food-bank charity.
Salisbury-based Trussell Trust says it has seen a big increase in numbers of people seeking provisions.
Manager Richard Parsons said the charity was trying to collect as much food as possible, because the situation was likely to get worse.
"Certainly in our local area we're seeing families saying, 'we've got a real problem, there are debt issues'."
"The food bank is specifically here to help people through their short-term problems."
