How churches can address the root causes of food poverty
The extraordinarily high number of people turning to food banks to make ends meet has brought a great deal of media and policy attention to the issue of food poverty.
This report reflects on church-based responses to the issue of food poverty, looking in particular at the nature of those responses. Using survey responses, it explores the degree to which churches are supporting people in crisis situations, when they are unable to buy food, or helping to tackle the underlying causes of those crises and so contributing to a long-term solution to food poverty.
