Britain is facing a food poverty crisis. Healthy food is now three times more expensive than unhealthy food. In areas across the country where inequality is most entrenched, families do not have the spending power to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
This has a knock-on effect on the lives of children. In England almost one in three primary-aged children are either overweight or obese, whilst many teachers report seeing schoolchildren struggling to concentrate in lessons because they are hungry.
Alexandra Rose Charity is driven by a simple and powerful belief – everyone should have access to healthy and affordable food.
