Abstract

Question; what is significant about the rise of food charity across various European countries? Explored with significant detail, this edited volume sufficiently answers this question by drawing on four key areas associated with the rise of food poverty and food charity. Cutting across both social policy and European geography, this book examines the development of food charity and its association with the welfare state; the impact of changing social policies (neoliberalism writ large); social justice; and future possibilities. This edited volume provides an extensive outline of how food poverty has been understood across several European countries.
