Intertitle: "UNEMPLOYED DISTRESS IN EAST END. Labour Council distribute food to 1200 hungry men and women".
Gruesome M/S of pile of dead rabbits on a trestle table. C/U of a pile of bread, a crowd people stand behind the table, we see the faces of hungry children looking at the pile. M/S of a man standing on one of the tables giving out food to a crowd of hungry people, he gives a piece of fish to a woman holding a baby.
M/S of people filing past a table covered in food, other people behind the table dole of food. C/U of a man in a trilby handing out loaves of bread, lots of people are crowded around him eager to get their share of the free food.
Various shots of a man giving out items from a cardboard box, another man standing on a table seems to be shouting instructions, two little girls in the foreground are pushed out of frame by the crowds - the atmosphere is chaotic and frantic. More general shots of people collecting food from the tables.
