Food poverty, or household food insecurity, can be triggered by a crisis in finance or personal circumstances, but may also be a long-term experience of not being able to access or have the facilities to prepare a healthy diet.
The experiences of these people are just the tip of the iceberg. Food poverty, or household food insecurity, has a myriad of faces. It can affect children who lack free school meals during the holidays; parents on low incomes going without food so that their children can eat; working people whose low wages leave them struggling to buy nutritious food; people with no recourse to public funds, or older people unable to prepare meals without support.
This year has been incredibly tough for everyone but one thing it has taught us, is the true resilience and generosity of this great nation. We, as a nation really pulled our socks up and made some truly inspiring changes to our day to day life’s for the greater good. It is now M R caterings turn to make a real change.
We have read some truly terrifying statistics that in 2018 -19 8.4 million people in the UK didn’t eat for days because they had no access to food! This has only increased in 2020.
So, we have made it our mission to try and make a real difference. We will donate a meal for every order we receive, any order, any size, any deal! We will find local food banks, churches open houses and give to those who are in need, we believe no one should go to bed feeling hungry.
