Poverty, Homelessness and Food Banks

It is estimated that over 3 million people have faced food poverty since the pandemic began, including those who have lost their employment and their homes. You can offer support by:

  • Map out food banks and points of contact in your area to be shared with those who need them.
  • Use the Covid-19 Mutual Aid website to locate individual who can support those who are vulnerable and self-isolating to access essential supplies.
  • Encourage parents of school age children to continue to claim their free school meals.
  • Share information on basic hygiene and infection control with those who may have limited access to technology.
  • Share information about the Government’s pledge to support those facing home insecurity and signpost to local Housing Offices.
