‘Centres needed to provide good food’

Homeless people are having to choose between eating and paying for
other essentials, a survey from a housing charity has

Housing Justice chief executive Robina Rafferty called for an
increase in properly funded day centres to provide more homeless
people with access to good food.

Three out of every four homeless people have to decide between
buying food or using their limited resources to buy other
essentials, finds the charity’s survey which was published last

Although almost three-quarters of homeless people interviewed at
day centres across England said they were interested in eating
well, more than half said they found it difficult to do so.
