If we measure it, we can mend 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. The second reading of the bill has been delayed, and will now take place in the House of Commons on 25th January 2019. It is really important that we get as many MPs as possible to support this bill.

Please email your MP and request that they support the bill!
