The future of foodbanks

As demand for foodbanks in the UK continues to rise, difficulties and gaps in state provision continue to be at the forefront of the conversation. The panel discuss the institutionalisation of foodbanks, what can be done to support those who rely on them to survive, and how they can be prevented from becoming a normalised part of society. Featuring Kayleigh Garthwaite, winner of the 2017 British Academy Peter Townsend Prize for her book Hunger Pains: Life inside foodbank Britain (Policy Press, 2016).

Organised in partnership with Policy Press.

This event was part of the British Academy's season on Identities & Belonging.
