What could FutureGov fix in a week?

Food poverty is hitting new record levels every month.

What can we do to alleviate this and/or lessen the knock on effects?

I particularly think there's something to be done around groups and food poverty. Apart from the benefits of community, bringing people together to cook/learn/whatever could: Save money through bulk buying. Bypass the issue of 'stock cupboard' finance. Learn from each others experience and have more motivation to spread the word.

Let's stick our heads together and see what we can do. I know enough food banks and activities/other things that are already happening for us to have plenty of research field trips.
