Dear all - you are all invited to attend and publicise accordingly!

The right to good food? Beyond foodbanks?

Tackling the scandal of food poverty in 21st century Britain

 
Hosted by Feeding Manchester, Merci, Manchester 
Monday 23 November, 3.00pm - 5.00pm

  • Do you care passionately that no one in the UK should go hungry?

  •  

  • Do you think that Government could do more to tackle food poverty?

  •  

  • Do you want to be part of building a food justice movement in the UK?

The explosion in food poverty and the huge numbers being forced to turn to food banks undermines the UK's commitment to ensuring that all its citizens have access to food – one of the most basic of all human rights.


Whilst hundreds of thousands of people have had to turn to foodbanks in recent years, emergency food aid cannot be a long-term solution.  A growing list of organisations including Church Action on Poverty, Oxfam, the Sustainable Food Cities Network, Trussell Trust, the Feeding Britain Inquiry have all called for stronger and more coordinated national and local government to take action to reduce food poverty.


Come and hear about the findings of the Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty - due out at the end of October – and have your input into shaping the growing campaign to tackle food poverty and hunger in the UK…


This is one of a series of events being organised across the UK to explore the potential for bringing together a broad range of groups across the country to build a more powerful national campaign to end food poverty and hunger in the UK in 2016.
