More than a third of people in the poorest households with annual incomes below £16,999 have occasionally struggled to pay for food, while a fifth find it a regular problem. A third also worry about losing their jobs in the near future, as the Covid-19 pandemic triggers unemployment levels that are predicted to rise to 7.5% by early next year, up from 4% at the start of 2020.
