The Food Foundation's affordable eating plan
MP Briefing

MP briefing: Helping everyone eat well during the cost of living crisis

Food prices have increased by 5.9% in the last 12 months and food insecurity levels have risen by 57% since January and this, along with reduced incomes, is putting more pressure on household budgets.

Families are having to choose less healthy options, or go without. Food insecurity affects not only physical health, but mental health and social wellbeing and diet-related ill health and food insecurity put pressure on the NHS.

3) Make healthy food more affordable

4) Commit to a new Good Food Bill
