London’s statistics on food insecurity were taken from the 2018/19 Survey of Londoners which measured a wide range of outcomes for Londoners including social integration and economic fairness. This is the first such measure of food security and showed that almost two million Londoners, of which an estimated 400,000 are children under 16 struggle to afford or access enough food.  The City Intelligence team are currently planning to repeat this survey after four years in 2022/23 but this will be subject to a business case. A final decision will be taken in 2022.
