This report sets out evidence and recommendations from the first six months’ work of the Independent Working Group on Food Poverty.
The report falls into five broad sections:
We have to treat people in food insecurity with dignity as the core principle which runs through all potential solutions.
We have to understand the scale of the problem in order that we can address it more effectively.
We have to focus on how we prevent food insecurity and hunger from occurring in the first place.
We have to respond more effectively when people do fall into food insecurity and hunger.
We have to invest in creating more sustainable, longer-term and more life-enriching solutions to food insecurity.
