The city mission's lunch bags for the vulnerable are not enough


The city mission's food center distributes over 70 groceries a day. The amount will double this year compared to last year. Still, it is far from everyone who is reached by the help.

- The number of people who need help in Uppsala is incredibly much greater than we think and what we see, says Johanna Wahlby at the City Mission in Uppsala.

Between 13 and 14 every day, the queue rings 100 meters from the entrance. The bags are marked according to wishes, in the long rows are pink patches with "eat everything", "not meat" and other things.

Last year there were 81 tonnes of food. This year, that weight has already been exceeded, and Johanna Wahlby believes it will double during the year.

- Then we are at the limit of what we can do. But many more need help, she says.
