FeedingManchester #16 is dedicated to highlighting progressive and sustainable solutions to food poverty.
Join us for a day of learning from inspiring community activists, poverty campaigners, food experts and farmers.
Foodbanks are making headline news, but our food system perpetuates other kinds of poverty as well.
While families struggle to feed themselves, farming and the food sector are reliant on poverty wages, poor conditions and precarious employment.
Join us as we explore a food system that is letting down so many and ask, how can we make food fair for everyone?
With speakers from Sustain’s London Food Poverty Pilot, Nourish Scotland, the Trades Union Congress, Church Action on Poverty and the Principal Investigator of ERC study “Families and Food Poverty in an Age of Austerity”.
Plus, discussion groups and a chance to feed into the national Commission on Food Poverty led by the Fabian Society.
