New Zealand's largest foodback facing closure over the rent it owes. 0800 Hungry in Christchurch is used by 130 agencies to help families and people in need. The founder of the foodbank, Kerry Bensemen, was awarded a Queen's birthday honour this year for his role in community. He's got until Thursday to pay the 30 thousand dollars in rent - or the doors of the food ministry will close for good. Kerry Bensemen talks to Jesse about the financial struggle they are facing.
