Church Action on Poverty has produced a report on funeral poverty - for more details see http://blog.church-poverty.org.uk/2015/10/12/funeral-poverty-time-for-the-churches-to-act/#more-1825.
It is also organising a number of events in different parts of Britain on the theme of 'The right to food? Beyond foodbanks? Tackling the scandal of food poverty in 21st century Britain'. These are linked with the findings of the Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty, due out at the end of October.
