Louise Delmege started this petition to UK Government and Local Authorities.

Due to the exponential increase of Covid-19 cases in the UK. The voluntary sector and mutual aid groups will be made responsible for emergency food provision, especially in the areas and communities at high risk of deprivation. It is absolutely vital and time sensitive that these groups are given adequate support to distribute food and essentials to mitigate a public health crisis. 

The National Food Service is a partnership of third sector projects that tackle food insecurity across the country with local contacts in every city or region. At its heart we share the desire to ensure that everyone has their basic needs met. Food is a right.

We have 3 essential demands that will enable our communities to support our society during this pandemic. We want the government and local authorities to act on these demands to remove blockers that exist in the voluntary sector so that we can be most effective.

1.  Support for all organisations tackling food insecurity during Covid - 19 - including mutual aid networks.

2. Grant emergency resources and reduce barriers to immediate food access.

3, Protect Community Spaces and increase access to kitchen facilities for public good.
