Tackling food insecurity in Scotland

Reducing the need for emergency food aid

Working together for a Scotland free from food insecurity

As a result of poverty – not a shortage of food – too many people don’t have enough food in Scotland. A Menu for Change aims to tackle this by evolving the emergency response to make sure those facing an income crisis can afford to buy their own food.
