Beyond the Food Bank 2018 is the fourth edition of London’s comprehensive food poverty profile. The report looks at what local authorities are doing to reduce food poverty across a range of measures.
Two major changes have been made to the 2018 top line measures. The first combines the two measures on childcare provision and children’s centres into one measure. This is now called “Provide high quality affordable childcare and maximize the value of children’s centres”. The second expands on the measure previously dedicated to 365 days food provision for children to make a clearer distinction between children accessing food during term time, and outside school when many face holiday hunger. These new measures are titled as follows: “Improve the implementation and uptake of free school meals” and “Secure children’s access to food during the holidays”. 23 councils responded to this year’s survey.
