£75 needed for food and bus fares

M is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort his finances, and is on track to have his debts written off. He is on a very low level of Universal Credit, and there are quite a few deductions from this before he receives his monthly income. He lives in a remote village, and his budget doesn't even allow for bus fares into the job centre. I've referred him to our foodbank, but he has no chilled, frozen or fresh food currently. We'd love to be able to help with these basic needs.
