The nonprofit food bank Berliner Tafel provides the essentials to hundreds of thousands of Berliners in need. But how does a charity survive the pandemic and its double blow of growing unemployment and panicked hoarding?

Sabine Werth, chairwoman of Berliner Tafel, describes how they are struggling to make it work, one day at a time.

“Now we have this situation," explains Werth. "People with money have the possibility to buy everything, and they collect it, and the poor people have no chance.”
