This week we’re bringing you our special report into poverty and hunger in the UK. As more and more families head to foodbanks, while the latest fad diets lord it over eating habits from all angles, we tuck in to the real state of the nation’s stomach.

Inside this week:

-A healthy, balanced diet is difficult to fit into any lifestyle, even more so for those who are homeless. People sofa surfing, in supported accommodation or rough sleeping can be affected by hunger and malnutrition, preventing them moving on with their life. Isabel Rice is a dietician who works for homelessness charity Centrepoint. She says that food insecurity is on the rise.

-Oscar winner Patricia Arquette slams the move against women’s rights in Our Letter To My Younger Self.

-Will you be happy eating imported US chicken blasted with chlorine? Find out how it affects us and animal welfare.

-The New Statesman’s Stephen Bush sets up camp in our books section.

-Our Big Pic this week showcases the remarkable way the world’s largest refugee camp has changed over the last five years – all because of technology.

-And we head to Gothenburg for this week’s vendor travel page.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
