Food poverty exists despite stories to persuade us otherwise with 3,500 people in Brighton and Hove not able to afford to feed themselves or their families. Low pay, high rents, expensive fuel and household bills. Reduced welfare support, inadequate housing benefits, withdrawal of emergency support. Poor housing, rogue landlords and inadequate cooking facilities. Poor health, lack of physical stamina and support at home. Loneliness, low mood, depression and poor mental health. Homelessness, rough sleeping and restricted spaces to shelter.
