Beyond the Food Bank: London Food Poverty Profile 2018
This is London Food Link’s fourth Beyond the Food Bank: London Food Poverty Profile report. It tracks what London’s 33 councils are doing to improve household food security, which according to accepted definitions means helping residents to ‘feed themselves and their dependents adequately, healthily and without anxiety’.
The report focuses on 10 policies that are within the influence and control of local councils, which if acted on will improve health and reduce inequality across the capital. Data for the report has been collected via a questionnaire which assesses the level of activity by boroughs on each of these measures. 23 councils responded to the questionnaire.
This year the report makes two major changes to its top line measures. The first combines the two measures on childcare provision and children’s centres into one measure. 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.
