Firstly, I must say that as a former teacher and having grown up in a council house with a single-parent family, I’m fully aware of the terrible trap of food poverty – and the very real social injustice it represents. "And I know that for many of the 1806 children (at the last count) who are eligible for free school meals in Somerton and Frome, they represent not just much-needed food but the ability to learn on an equal footing with others. So I approach all debates and legislative proposals on this topic with enormous seriousness.
