Abstract

This paper is based upon analysis of Go Well’s wave 4 (2015) community survey which for the first time included a question on food bank use, and a follow-up question on reasons for non-use. The paper provides the first known analysis of a self-reported measure of food bank use in the UK and details the scale of food bank use among residents of Glasgow’s deprived neighbourhoods. Characteristics of food bank users and non-users are also reported, focusing on a number of variables including: socio-demographic variables; personal factors; health variables; and financial variables.
