As the demand for food banks and other emergency food charities continues to rise across the continent, this is the first systematic, Europe-wide study of the roots and consequences of this urgent phenomenon. 

Leading researchers provide case studies from the UK, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain, each considering the history and driving political and social forces behind the rise of food charity, and the influence of changing welfare states. They build into a rich comparative study that delivers valuable evidence for anyone with an academic or professional interest in related issues including social policy, exclusion, poverty and justice.
