In response to the rising cost of living, Deliveroo has partnered with foodbank charity The Trussell Trust to create an initiative that aids Britons facing food insecurity. With people across the country looking for ways to mitigate rising prices, how can brands best show their support?
With the cost of living soaring, millions of Britons have been forced into food poverty. In response, the Community Shop Group is providing access to discounted products for those who need them, as well as community hubs and kitchens – redefining social responsibility through grassroots initiatives.
Instead of the coronavirus pandemic being the ‘great leveller’, it has highlighted the number of people who deal with food insecurity. Working to get meals to vulnerable Londoners, The Felix Project uses surplus restaurant and supermarket food to fight food poverty in the capital.
It’s a bleak time for UK consumers as they face rising food costs, as well as skyrocketing petrol, energy bills, tax, and mortgage payments. How can brands innovate, inspire, and demonstrate real value with a long-term view of sustainability in order to weather the storm?
With the cost of living surging in the UK, food security is becoming a bigger problem. For those on the cusp of food poverty but disqualified from food banks, social supermarkets plug a gap, letting Britons purchase surplus food at heavily discounted prices or by paying what they can.
