There is 'hidden hunger' on Northern Ireland's doorstep. With no agreed Food Poverty Indicator for Northern Ireland it is essential that action is taken. We are inviting you to contribute to the evidence base by discussing how many people experience food poverty, which consumer groups are affected, and where in society could interventions best be targeted, to help inform policy-making relating to food poverty.
