1 in 4 poor households regularly go without food and struggle to have even basic nutrition. 17% of adults surveyed reported being worried about running out of food before they have any money to buy any more.
The UN last year found that 8 million households in the UK we’re living in what they called food insecurity. A survey by Young Woman’s Trust found that 46% of young mums go without food to feed their children in England. Campaigners and MPs have urged the Government to monitor food insecurity but the Tories have so far refused, they are shameless.
I find it disgusting that in the 4th wealthiest country in the world millions go hungry, that is a national scandal that we should all be ashamed of.
