To achieve this organisations across Scotland will be organising events, running community activities, meeting with politicians to discuss their concerns.
Through all these focused activities we want to show that there is nothing inevitable about poverty. Not only are many people and organisations addressing poverty right now, but there is far more that we can do in the future to make a bigger impact.
"So many families are now eating cold or microwave meals as they can't afford to use their cooker. Parents are starving themselves to allow their children to eat and so many who have had their benefits sanctioned are now living at the mercy of friends and family all because of the ruthless changes to our welfare system. Please join us for Challenge Poverty Week to help us STAMP out poverty"
