Community Focus members and volunteers in partnership with Halal Incorp helped raise money for food aid and assistance locally in Greater Manchester. The funds that were raised by volunteers helped purchase food items which were passed onto another charity organisation to distribute to those in need. Currently it is astounding that in 2016 people living in an economically developed country should be relying on Foodbanks and living in fear of food poverty. We take a strong stance against food poverty and aim to assist as many individuals and community members as possible to overcome hunger and food poverty. In the last few years many organisations and community groups have been formed to tackle food deprivation, poverty and hunger. This is a positive sign and displays the strength of social capital and community development. However authorities need to recognise the growing issue of food poverty and develop plans to tackle this issue effectively and eradicate it from contemporary society.
