The cost of living in England causes some people to skip meals. Others starve themselves to feed their families.
Due to the high cost of living in the UK, some people either skip meals or go hungry for other family members. Of the 2,000 people aged 16-25 who participated in the latest survey by Centrepoint, a charity working to reduce homelessness, 177 said they were often without food to feed someone else. 265 of the participants stated that they went to bed hungry frequently in the last 12 months, and 207 of them stated that they were obliged to frequent food aids. 333 people said they needed family or friends for food. Speaking to BBC Radio, a woman named Tasha, who lives in Derby, stated that although she and her husband work full-time, they find it difficult to take care of their two-year-old daughter. “Food prices in the UK continue to rise at an unprecedented rate for 40 years,” said Tasha. He said that he sometimes did not eat so that his daughter could eat. Zahraa, 22, from West Yorkshire, described her feelings when she hadn’t eaten for three days. “I still can’t forget that I woke up in the middle of the night for two nights and cried in bed,” Zahraa said. What helped Jayde, who lives in London, to care for her three- and seven-year-old children, is community assistance in her area, including the parish church. “If I didn’t have children, I would probably continue to starve, I would live without gas or electricity,”
