Tackling the poverty premium

Food poverty has become a particular challenge for people on low incomes. 48% of high interest loans are used to pay for food.

Many people on low incomes, struggling to stretch family budgets are time-poor, often relying on processed and convenience foods to feed their families.

The Good Food Bag offers a subscription-free, affordable, healthier alternative. It’s easy to order and collect and is simple and quick to prepare.

A group of housing associations have provided seed funding and staff time to bring The Good Food Bag to life. The team have worked with chefs and industry specialists to develop and market test 15 recipes. Their aim is for The Good Food Bag to be available in the Greater Manchester area in the next 12 months. To find out more please email Bethan Buck.
