This week Craig talks to Heather from the direct action group This Is Rigged about their upcoming March for Scran – a protest on February 18th 2024 starting at 11am from Garnethill Park in Glasgow. They discuss the reasons for food insecurity in Scotland, the rise of foodbank demand coinciding with a drop in donations and funding to meet that demand and what the Scottish Government could do to alleviate the problem including ideas such as community-owned food hubs.
