Action on Food Poverty – Solidarity not charity

On Wednesday 12 October 2022, Fans Supporting Foodbanks (FSF) Liverpool brought a delivery of surplus food items, part donated and part purchased by FSF Merseyside and Unite the union to the Rangers – Liverpool Champions’ League group game.

This shipment was sent on the Liverpool Spirit of Shankley coach. This act of solidarity was brought about by the news that food poverty is an increasing issue in Glasgow, with a recent Survation survey commissioned by Unite showing that 177,979 (28%) residents in Glasgow have either gone in to debt or increased their levels of debt in order to meet the increased cost of grocery items. Download the full report/update below.
