Generosity leaves a young mum without food

Ruth is a teenage mum with a one year old child.  Although she has family locally they are also on benefits and therefore feel unable to help her very much.  Ruth has a friend who needed some help and so she unwisely lent them some money which was not returned quick enough to prevent her from running out of money herself.  Her health visitor is working with her to get back on her feet but in the meantime a Swindon Foodbank voucher ensured she would have food for her and her child to eat.
