How we live now: Poverty and hunger in 2019

This week we’re bringing you our special report into poverty and hunger in the UK. As more and more families head to foodbanks, while the latest fad diets lord it over eating habits from all angles, we tuck in to the real state of the nation’s stomach.

Inside this week:

  • Oscar winner Patricia Arquette slams the move against women’s rights in Our Letter To My Younger Self
  • Will you be happy eating imported US chicken blasted with chlorine? Find out how it affects us and animal welfare
