I found it hard to believe that in the seventh richest economy in the world, food banks, and food collections were going on in London not to feed the starving in Africa, but the working poor in London.
Incredible, isn't it? And the thing is, it's not really a food crisis in any proper sense, because there is no shortage of food. Thanks for reviewing this book - it sounds as though it was worth the effort, despite the errors. I'm not sure that it would be a good idea for people to set up their own food banks, though. Official ones, run by recognised organisations, are given private information so they can identify people genuinely in need.
Yes, not only a food crisis but there really was a shortage of food. Shortage of food was the bottleneck of all the problems presented in the book. During that time, Food Banks Britain ran out of food, too, despite the donations they got from the excess food from supermarkets. Food Banks Britain had served their purpose during that time. Otherwise, there would have been a lot of people who had starved to death other than those who had committed suicide.

Your review was quite informative and piqued my interest in this book. It's one thing to talk or write about helping others but the author is truly making a difference.
