Help us tackle the scandal of food poverty

As part of our Food, Fuel, Finance programme, we have carried out several pieces of work focusing on the issue of food poverty.

  • We have co-published a report with Oxfam, Walking the Breadline. Download and read the report below.
  • We have mobilised supporters to call for an inquiry into the links between our benefits system and rising food poverty. The Select Committee on Work and Pensions is now considering this, and we hope to have more to report soon.
  • We have secured 'crowdfunding' for a major advertising campaign highlighting the problem. See the 'Britain Isn't Eating' link below.
