Hunger from the inside: The experience of food poverty in the UK

This report demonstrates the benefits of putting communities at the heart of action to tackle food poverty and social exclusion. Through the words of participants who took part in Sustain's Community Mapping project the report reveals how the depth and breadth of peoples experiences can be harnessed towards positive action and policy development. It highlights the disparities between what is being done, what is not being done and what should be done at local regional and national levels and encourages more Community Mapping.
