Looks like Food vouchers are set to be offered in the UK next month, when thousands of people in need will be issued with food vouchers instead of cash to help them out when short-term financial crises occurs.
At present councils offers cash loans but most councils will from April offer applicants who need emergency help a voucher redeemable for goods such as food and nappies.
I suppose it is only a matter of time before the Irish Government puts a similar scheme in place, as we always ape what the UK does.
How do Pie posters feel about a similar scheme been introduced in Ireland?
