Tesco's Group Corporate Affairs Director Rebecca Shelley said that research into the number of people who are affected by food poverty in the UK has increased, with "no signs of improving". She said:
It's hitting families hard, especially when resources like free school meals, breakfast clubs and after school clubs are not available.
Because we have stores in so many communities across the UK, we are working with the help of our customers, thousands of our colleagues and volunteers from the Trussell Trust and FareShare to help provide emergency food to people who are struggling.
