Beyond the Food Bank is London’s first comprehensive food poverty profile. The new report from Sustain’s London Food Link looks at what local authorities are doing to help the most vulnerable access good food.
The report focuses on initiatives that help put more money in the pockets of those in need (healthy start vouchers, breastfeeding, living wage, free school meals, along with breakfast clubs and holiday meal provision), and those that help provide access to affordable, healthy food (improving physical access and supporting meals on wheels).
