Since the 1990s, the group of people in need of food assistance has changed and expanded.
The queue includes old, middle-aged and young people, women and men, single parents, low-income retirees, family and single-minded, unemployed, physically or mentally ill, temporary workers,low-paid, highly educated, immigrants and students.
The common thing is that income is not enough for spending. There are people suffering from hunger.
There are also lonely people to whom this is the only way to meet other people.
Although we are speaking more and more openly of bread queues than in the past, for many people this is a situation associated with shame and fears about what others think.
Common meals have become a complement to the bread queues, but there is a lot of work to arrange them regulary. The current bread queues administrators are not excited. Resources are simply not enough.
