Tackling food poverty

Food poverty is a real issue just now – especially as many have lost their jobs, the economy is stretched and job security is a major cause of anxiety.

An increasing number of people rely on food banks to feed their families.

Catholic charities, parishes and volunteers have a big role to play. They also work closely with other organisations whose mission it is to feed the poorest and most vulnerable in our society.

In this podcast we look at two North London food banks that are making a real difference to their local communities.


The images used in the film represent the work of the first project – the food bank operating out of St Monica’s in Palmers Green, north London.
