If we measure hunger, we can end it
Every day in the UK people are going hungry because they cannot afford to eat. You may know someone in this position, or maybe this is you. However, MPs don’t know how big the scale of this problem is because, surprisingly, they do not collect statistics on how many people can’t afford to eat, or worry about where their next meal is coming from.
But we have a chance to change this and we need your help. Emma Lewell-Buck MP has created a 10-minute Rule Bill which asks the government to start measuring food insecurity across the UK. This will be heard by MPs on November 29th. It is really important that we get as many MPs as possible to support this bill.
