At a parliamentary debate on the food system, Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner raised the rise in food bank usage, food price inflation, and obesity. He called on the Government to create a plan for the food system rather than leaving it to the market, which he said “does not work if we want healthy, sustainable, fair outcomes”.

During the debate, Daniel Zeichner said “we all want a healthier country; an end to food banks; shorter, more secure supply chains; a fair deal for producers; and healthy, nutritious British food widely available. The question is how. When Labour left office, we had a plan, “Food 2030”. Since then, the country has not had a plan”.

With recent visits to Co-Farm in Cambridge and the Cambridge Foodbank, Mr Zeichner has seen first-hand the excellent work being done to address the failings of the food system. He argued that the Government is exacerbating inequalities and harming our environment by failing to address these problems.
