- Food Poverty
Fiona Twycross has been on the London Assembly as a Labour London-wide List member since May 2012, and was re-elected in 2016.
Fiona is Chair of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority. She also chairs the Assembly’s Economy Committee and is a member of the Regeneration Committee and Education Panel. Prior to her election she worked for the health charity Diabetes UK. She is a Trustee of the Encephalitis Society.
Fiona has campaigned on the issue of Food Poverty and got Boris Johnson to agree to sign up to work towards making London a ‘Zero Hunger City’ by 2020. This followed an investigation she led on into the scale of food poverty in London on behalf of the Assembly’s Health and Environment Committee, which produced the A Zero Hunger City: Tackling Food Poverty in London report. Fiona has raised issues of low pay, particularly around the London Living Wage as well as raising the issue of child poverty in London.
