1. This draft national plan outlines the Scottish Government's vision and approach to ending the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity. It sets out what we are currently doing and what more we intend to do, alongside others, to achieve this.
We are publishing this in draft format to initiate conversations with frontline organisations and people with direct experience of poverty so together we can refine the content before publishing a final plan. The draft has been prepared in consultation with a steering group on ending the need for food banks which includes food bank networks and people with direct experience of using their services, alongside other organisations that are working towards a shared vision of eradicating poverty.
Consultation questions are included at the end of this document with a focus on helping us to identify further practical action that can be taken at all levels to deliver this vision. We are inviting responses to this consultation by 25 January 2022.
