The Food Foundation has released a report of the impact a year of crisis has had on food security. 4.7 million adults have been affected by food insecurity over the last 6 months.
“We should now move to a longer-term package of support for food insecure households and away from emergency measures. Making the £20 uplift to Universal credit permanent is a vital part of this package, as is extending Free School Meals to all children in food insecure households. The long-term effects of food insecurity on mental and physical health mean that children can’t wait.” – Anna Taylor, Executive Director of Food Foundation
