Second food bank rejects racism accusation over distribution policy

A Tafel (food bank) in the western town on Marl rejected accusations of racism on Thursday after it decided to stop serving single adults in the wake of the refugee crisis. Renate Kampe, the head of the charity in Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia, told broadcaster WDR on Thursday that they would be accepting no new single adults for the time being due to the fact that they had reached the limit of their capacity to distribute more food.
