38.17% of children in Rossendale live in poverty

Every day in the UK people are going hungry because they cannot afford to eat. However, MPs don’t know how big the scale of this problem is because, surprisingly, they do not collect statistics on how many people can’t afford to eat or worry about where their next meal is coming from.

But we have a chance to change this and we need your help. Please will you write to your MP to ask them to support this bill? We’ve included the details of MPs from Rossendale on our poster food poverty petition request.
