Food insecurity in Birmingham — a city level response?

Posted on 16th October 2015 by Kate Cooper

We’ve just published the result of our project on food poverty, a discussion document Food insecurity in Birmingham — a city level response? 

We’re keen to get your responses to it. Please comment!

A few years ago, it was difficult to imagine that here in Birmingham as in other UK cities, food insecurity would be a major local concern. Yet the growing number of food banks in the city — and increasing numbers of people affected by food poverty in its many guises — is a manifestation of food insecurity right here.

Our project set out to answer this question: Is it possible to have an effective city-level response to this situation and, if so, what does it look like?

Our thanks to the Barrow Cadbury Trust for their financial support of this project, and to Ashrammoseley for their support of the workshop we hosted on 11th May 2015.
