Poverty Alliance paper cautioning against the further entrenchment of foodbanks into Scotland’s welfare system

Standard

Extract from Senscot’s weekly bulletin below:

“A recent parliamentary inquiry into hunger in the UK – called for an expansion of the food bank system – to be supplied by corporate food waste. A joint statement by Edinburgh and Glasgow city councils – boldly disagrees: “We believe that food waste is not an effective or socially just solution to food poverty.” A paper this week, from Scotland’s excellent Poverty Alliance, assembles research cautioning against the further entrenchment of foodbanks into Scotland’s welfare system.”
