UK Food Poverty: Measurement and risk mitigation

by Suchith Anand

I would like to invite you to GODAN Webinar coveringUK Food Poverty and insecurity on 29th January 2021. Hidden hunger is a growing issue in developed economies.  Household food insecurity, or food poverty, is an ongoing challenge in the United Kingdom. There has been no systematic measurement of this growing public health and social justice problem until recently, with much data yet to be released. When the data are shared in early 2021, it will be at coarse geographic scales that will not allow for local planning of activities to address food poverty.
