Global survey shows one in six Kiwis struggling for food

Friday, March 21, 2014

A global survey has found that one in every six Kiwis ran out of money for food in 2011-12 - more than in all except eight other developed nations.

The shock finding contrasts with other data in an annual survey by the Paris-based OECD that put New Zealand near the top of the 34 developed countries on social indicators such as people's perceived health status and employment rates, and above average on relative poverty.
