Food Poverty and Hunger

12 August 2014

Anyone working at a community level across the UK is probably all too aware of the rising number of people suffering from food poverty. In response to this growing problem the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hunger and Food Poverty was established by Frank Field MP in October 2013, in order to proactively investigate the root causes behind hunger, food poverty and the huge increase in demand for food banks across Britain. The Sustainable Food Cities network was invited to submit evidence, and a call-out to SFC member resulted in over 15 individual responses – a huge response considering it was last minute and required pulling together information from diverse partners. We are grateful to everyone who submitted evidence to us to pass on – it is always good to get a high level of responses to consultations. However in this case it is a sad reflection on just how pressing an issue this is in our towns and cities.
We will be producing a summary of all the submissions we received but in the meantime you can read our covering letter here.
