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?
