Details

This is the report of a research project looking at available evidence on what ‘food aid’ is available to households in the UK, who takes it up and why. ‘Food aid’ covers a range of different types of support, including short term help available from food banks and soup runs, as well as food provided as part of community care such as ‘Meals on Wheels’.

The research was undertaken by a group of researchers led by the University of Warwick. It provides an understanding of the wide range of mainly charitable organisations providing help of this sort to their communities.

This report is also available on Defra’s Science and Research Projects web pages.
