The current food supply is not secure

Is there no end to the curse of immigration? 

Bryn Smith (James Cook University and a Global Voices Delegate to the World Bank & IMF Spring Meetings) warns that food security is going to be of crucial importance:

Would it be unreasonable to ask the pro-immigration lobby in the United Kingdom to tell us what the immigrants (currently running at 212,000 net per year) are going to eat?

If the current food supply is not secure, is it not the height of irresponsibility to advocate allowing even more people into the country?

There were two food price spikes in the last decade (2007-08 and 2010-11).  Did these food spikes cause a surge in the demand for food banks in the United Kingdom?  Will this become increasingly the norm as immigration continues to flood into a country that cannot produce all the food necessary for its population and thus must buy on the international "spot" markets.
