TRADITIONAL food markets should be brought back to the city to help combat rising hunger and food costs.
This is the call from one Glasgow councillor, who said more must be done to help those struggling to feed themselves.
The number of people in the city turning to food banks is at a worrying high, according to the Trussell Trust charity. The Evening Times revealed recently that they handed out 27,603 meals to local people in the last three months.
The charity fed 3067 people from three city food banks – a jump from 2218 in the first six months of the year.
Councillor David McDonald, who represents Greater Pollok and has been involved in setting up the newest Trussell Trust food bank covering the south west of the city, believes that local food markets would help cut prices and promote greater access to fresh, healthy produce.
