A new poll revealed a huge majority of people in Scotland believe the need for food banks is a sign that something is ‘fundamentally wrong’ in our society. The research, which was commissioned by Oxfam Scotland, also indicates strong support for action to reduce the need for food banks – and wider food insecurity – in Scotland.

The new research found that 82% of people in Scotland believe there is something fundamentally wrong in our society if people have to use food banks. The figure across the rest of Great Britain was 75%.
