Use of shopping vouchers by food banks

A new briefing from the Independent Food Aid Network examines the learning from the use of food vouchers instead of or alongside food provision during lockdown. Its Cash First Project in Scotland involves co-developing practical tools and resources to improve access to cash-based options for those experiencing food insecurity, as well as working collaboratively with food aid providers.

Food bank managers who contributed to the briefing have found that offering shopping vouchers provides a more flexible and dignified way of supporting people.

The briefing can be found here.
