In the short term, a temporary food hunger relief fund should be made available, limited to the Christmas holiday. The funding could be directed from HMT to local authorities with tight spending conditions attached. Professional nutritional guidance should be issued to local authorities who are distributing the funds, with a clear obligation to pass on such guidance to claimants.
