Get your local authority to tell us what it is doing to address food poverty!
Every year we ask all local authorities in London to tell us what they are doing to avert or ease food poverty for their residents. Our survey seeks information on policies and areas that are within the control of local authorities such as:
This information is then presented in our annual food poverty profile called Beyond the Food Bank, which provides a comprehensive picture of how much London boroughs are doing to reduce long-term food poverty.
Last year, the four local councils mentioned above did not disclose this information. We are therefore calling on residents in these four boroughs to urge their council to tell us what they are doing by sending the email below to their local Council Leader or Mayor, Cabinet Member for Children/Young People and Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care.
