Cash-first: Towards Ending the Need for Food Banks in Scotland: plan

A commitment to a ‘cash-first’ approach to tackling food insecurity is at the heart of a new Scottish Government plan to reduce the need for people to turn to food banks. The plan sets out nine actions which will be taken over the next three years to improve responses to food insecurity.

The role of community food organisations in promoting wellbeing being and providing person-centred support, including social contact, has been recognised within Action 4 of the plan.

More information can be found on the Scottish Government website.
