Ending the need for food banks: consultation on a draft national plan

This consultation seeks views on the Scottish Government's vision and approach to ending the need for food banks as a primary response to food insecurity, and invites further suggestions on what more can be done to shape a national plan. Views are sought by 25 January 2022.

National and international policy alignment

5. Ending the need for food banks aligns with our national mission to eradicate poverty, our Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan and our Good Food Nation ambition. This is linked to our National Performance Framework Outcomes on poverty and human rights.

This will contribute toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal commitments on ending hunger, eradicating poverty and ensuring good health and wellbeing. It also contributes to our commitment to realise the right to food as part of the right to an adequate standard of living.
