More than 8 million people in Britain live in households that struggle to put enough food on the table, with over half regularly going a whole day without eating.

4.7 million people aged over 15 were severely food-insecure, meaning they were to poor afford enough food and sometimes went without. A further 3.7 million were classed as moderately food-insecure.

One in 10 adults suffered moderate levels of food insecurity in 2014, placing the UK in the bottom half of European countries on hunger measures, below Hungary, Estonia, Slovakia and Malta.

There are many reason people are getting into food poverty such as: Working in a low paid job, making choices between eating and heating, only being able to feed a certain amount of people in their household and many other reasons.

There are many charities and food banks that are helping these people that are in food poverty. An example is " The Trussel Trust "
