The number of people using foodbanks in Wales has doubled in the past year alone.
One manager of a foodbank has told ITV News that they can't cope with demand and often see queues around the corner.
With more people facing unemployment and cuts to benefits, it is feared the demand is only going to increase.
Ian Purcell from Cardiff Foodbank describes the increased demand for services in Wales.
He says that people from all walks of society are coming forward seeking help from the foodbank.
Pamela receives food from The Trussell Trust foodbanks, she says without them she would have to borrow money and it would be "chaos."
The number of people turning to foodbanks has more than doubled in the past 12 months.
35,919 people received a minimum of three days emergency food from Trussell Trust foodbanks in Wales in 2012-13, compared to 16,204 in 2011-12.
35 percent of those helped were children.
The charity puts the increase down to the rising cost of living, static incomes, changes to benefits, underemployment and unemployment.
In Cardiff alone 53 tonnes of food was provided to more than 5,000 people.
The Trussell Trust says it has seen a 55 percent increase in the number of foodbanks launched in Wales since April 2012 but has seen a 120 percent increase in numbers of people given emergency food.
