The Telegraph, 20 May 2018
“Surplus rations from the Armed Forces could be handed out to feed the homeless”, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.
Gavin Williamson, the Defence secretary, ordered “urgent advice” on whether ration packs approaching the end of their shelf life can be handed to charities or good causes.
It follows years of campaigning in Parliament by respected Labour MP Frank Field for spare rations to be handed to those in need, particularly homeless people.”
This recommendation was made in the first Feeding Britain report and has since been advocated for by Feeding Britain and Trustees.
