43% of low income Scots cut back on food to pay bills and debts, says @CitAdviceScot

As the Trussell Trust opens its 50th food bank in Scotland, Citizens Advice Scotland publishes its findings on the cost of poverty in Scotland 

FORTY-THREE PER CENT of respondents to a Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) survey said they cut back their expenditure predominately on food as a result of bills and repayments.

Through interviews with clients of CAS, cutting back on food was shown to have a negative impact on the physical health of many of the respondents.
