What is it about?

Poverty in the UK continues to rise making it more important than ever to understand lived experiences of poverty. This paper analyses the atmospheres at three foodbanks in two British cities in 2014 and 2019 in order to draw out people’s collective lived experiences of poverty. It argues that the atmospheres were formed by the ever-changing relation between the capacities of clients and volunteers through the past, present and anticipated future, and the ongoing context of austerity.
