Everyone should have access to good food. No one should have to go to bed hungry.
This petition is a call on the UK Government to fix Universal Credit to prevent more people going hungry. We all rely on the welfare safety net being there for us in times of financial stress or hardship. But Universal Credit is currently failing in this task. In areas where Universal Credit has been rolled out, Food Banks and other food aid providers report a surge in the numbers of people pushed into greater debt, destitution and hunger as a result of delays, errors, a lack of flexibility and adequate support.
Sue and I are going to London to present this petition to No.10 Downing Street on the 7th of November 2018, by invitation of friends who probably prevented our death.
