I read the following on Oxfams website.
“More than 13.5 million people in Britain live in poverty. That’s more than one in five without enough to live on, discriminated against, and with more barriers to achieving their potential than anyone else.
I don’t doubt that what they say is true, but I think they could have chosen a better picture to illustrate the fact. Obviously the food at the local Soup Kitchen is very fattening!

It is absolute nonsense.

They should at least have pointed out that financially challenged people often have poor nutrition, because they can’t afford proper food. I can remember as a child bread and butter “sandwiches” and tinned sweetened condensed milk “sandwiches”. Terrible nutrition and very fattening.
However, I agree that they could indeed have chosen a better picture, as most people don’t read (or can’t read).
