Food bank story that left bad taste

By Jane Graham

Published 25/04/2014

I imagine the Mail on Sunday felt their food bank whistleblower would be embraced by the public like the News of the World's fraud-exposing fake sheikh once was.

Won't the nation be outraged to find out that extensive background checks aren't carried out before people are handed a bowl of hot soup, someone must have thought.

So we must presume they're simply baffled that donations to food banks surged in the wake of their proud and lusty brandishing of the mighty sword of truth.

One food bank organiser said he'd rather feed 10 Mail journalists than let a desperate family starve.
