Food Banks

Question for Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

UIN HL14826, tabled on 12 April 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have, if any, to introduce a shelf-labelling scheme to inform customers of the food items that are most needed in food banks.

Food banks are independent, charitable organisations and the UK Government does not have any role in their operation. Decisions about shelf-labelling are therefore a matter for food bank providers.
