The growth in the need for food aid, in the UK, has been staggering. That's why The BMJ has chosen the Independent Food Aid Network (IFAN) as its annual charity appeal.
Nutritional guidelines which work for everyone is difficult, even harder for food aid providers who have to factor in things like long term storage, reduced access to fresh produce and in some cases the inability to afford the electricity to cook with.
In this podcast, Sabine Goodwin, IFAN's coordinator is joined by Isabel Rice, dietician at the charity Centrepoint, and Dee Woods, co-chair of IFAN and who co-runs Granville Community Kitchen, a food aid provider in London.
