Londoners are relying on social supermarkets "not out of choice but need" - Fiona Twycross AM

Commenting on the Mayor of London’s announcement of new funding for 'social supermarkets', Economic Spokesperson of the London Assembly Labour Group Fiona Twycross AM said:

“Social supermarkets are an innovative way to help combat food waste and poverty, however the fact that so many Londoners are being forced to rely on these kinds of services is deeply concerning. The Mayor has to accept that increasing numbers of Londoners facing low pay, underemployment and benefit sanctions are relying on these kinds of enterprises, not out of choice but need.

“Today’s investment is welcome but the Mayor must not feel he has done his bit or be complacent, far more needs to be done to win the fight against hunger.”
