Get the government to open and fund more foodbanks in the UK.

After researching, I have found some distressing facts and statistics about Food poverty within the UK. there are 4.7 million people in the UK who are living in Food poverty. more than half a million people in the UK are reliant on food aid. Oxfam and Church Action on Poverty have calculated that 20,247,042 food parcels were given to people living in food poverty, which is a 54% increase than the previous year. what is more upsetting is that more than 40,000 children live below the poverty line and 1 in 10 children are eating below the expected amount. No human should be suffering from a lack of food especially living in the world's seventh wealthiest country and no human deserves to live a live like this, especially a child, as they did not ask for this. This is an issue which is rising significantly and more food banks need to be opened to provide for everyone lacking in food and this is a way in which we can tackle this issue. we urge you to take this issue seriously and to consider how important this will be.

Thank you
