Research

The first Feeding Britain report was published in December of 2014 following an inquiry commissioned by a cross party group of MPs in to the extent and causes of hunger in the United Kingdom. The inquiry received evidence from hundreds of people and organisations across the country. 

Since that first report in 2014, Feeding Britain has continued to collect evidence from across the country to monitor the changing landscape of hunger, and reveal the hidden or less well known aspects of food poverty.
