Abstract

Food poverty/insecurity has become a subject of key policy concern in Scotland and the UK in recent years.

Emerging research evidence indicates that there's an increasing number of households in this country unable to sustain normal patterns of food shopping and eating, with many seeking charitable food aid to help them do so.

The main aim of this research, comprising of a rapid literature review, secondary analysis of relevant data, and interviews with local practitioners, was to explore the wider context of household food poverty/insecurity in Scotland and to develop an understanding of the current level and nature of food poverty/insecurity.

Included within the report are recommendations on how policy and practice can be better informed.
