One of the organisations behind today's Walking the Breadline report into the rising reliance on foodbanks is Oxfam. The charity's Chris Johnes spoke to our presenter John Shires who began by asking how one of the world's most developed countries could have such a problem with feeding people.
Oxfam's Director of UK Poverty, Chris Johnes, has warned that welfare reforms could tip even more people into food poverty:
Hundreds of children in West Yorkshire are campaigning for a world where there is enough food for everyone - with kites.
The children, from Otley, Pool and Bramhope, flew their kites today with messages against hunger at Wharfemeadows Park.
The children made their own kites and decorated them, as part of Oxfam’s Flying the Kite for Food initiative. With help from Oxfam they learnt about the causes of and solutions to global hunger.
