Abstract

Food poverty in the UK has reached unprecedented levels. Faith groups and volunteers are playing a crucial role in responding to food poverty from food banks and children’s holiday groups, through to collecting evidence and campaigning for change. When a person is motivated by their religious faith to volunteer and respond to poverty, this shows the importance of faith beyond worship spaces,
in people’s daily lives, and in wider society.
