Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "Our statistics are a measure of volume rather than unique users, and on average people needed around two foodbank referrals in the last year. The data is collected using an online system into which foodbanks enter data from each foodbank voucher, and the number of three-day emergency food supplies is recorded."
