APPG on Hunger launches inquiry into hunger amongst the elderly

24 July 2017

The Group is concerned that, despite the significant reduction in pensioner poverty that has taken place under successive governments, there are some older people who, for one reason or another, struggle to keep themselves both fed and well-nourished.
