That’s what this charity rep seems to be telling Reporting Scotland’ Connor Gillies. Gillies is already a master of reporting tales of economic hardship with diddley in the way of facts or context.
There is no mention of Brexit and the claims then of Conservatives that it would mean cheaper food.
Crucially there is no mention of Scottish Government efforts to moderate this crisis and the facts that demonstrate some success in that.
I repeat myself I know but just in case, see these:
Child poverty in Scotland is at half the rate of England. Why?
Two reasons. More affordable housing (https://www.jrf.org.uk/report/poverty-scotland-2021) and the Child Payment:
The Scottish Government’s decisive and compassionate move to bring in the new Scottish Child Payment is the lifeline children and their families need, and is a beacon of progressive policy for the rest of the UK.https://www.jrf.org.uk/blog/scottish-child-payment-will-turn-tide-child-poverty
What is the Child Payment, unique to Scotland?
Scottish Child Payment helps towards the costs of supporting your family. It’s a weekly payment of £20 that you can get for every child you look after who’s under 6 years of age. You’ll get the payment every 4 weeks if your application is successful.https://www.mygov.scot/scottish-child-payment#:~:text=Contents&text=Scottish%20Child%20Payment%20helps%20towards,if%20your%20application%20is%20successful.

She does not look like she is struggling to put food on her table.
Please refer her to Jacob Rees
He has all the answers after all as
1.As a big fan of food banks
2.The 1000,s of great opportunity has yielded
And found as Minister of Brexit opportunities
But last i heard that he does want to talk about it
And considers the negative
Reports on Brexit as utter bilge

Teaching isn’t particularly well paid but it isn’t that badly paid either. I retired from teaching some years ago but still know people working as teachers. Like others they are feeling the pinch but not struggling to put food on the table.
