    Abstract

    This paper responds to the question of whether voluntary responses to food poverty are a sticking plaster without addressing the causes of UK food poverty. I respond to this question by drawing on a case study of running a holiday hunger project and reflect on three principles: being relational, encouraging participation, and working for justice. I conclude with three recommendations for how voluntary organisations can work towards both short and longer-term responses to food poverty.
