Our Daily Bread

In Finland there are over 20 000 people who receive food from a breadline every week. Over 90% of them wouldn't make do without food aid. After monthly expenses, 50% of the people who receive aid get by with a 100 Euros or less.

Food aid was thought to be a temporary solution for poor people in Finland in the 1990s. Nowadays it's a permanent and continuing phenomena all over the country. At first most of the people receiving food aid were single alienated men. Today the people in need come for various backgrounds, from mothers to students, immigrants and even working people.

All the bags were shot on location at Myllypuro breadline in Helsinki, Finland.
