Food poverty is consistent access to adequate food being limited by a lack of money and other resources. End Child Poverty Coalition have reported that more than half of Greater Manchester’s wards have child poverty rates of 25% or more, while the number of emergency food providers in the city region has more than doubled in five years – GMPA has counted and mapped over 170 providers. The Alliance aim to eradicate food poverty.
