A Right to Food? Beyond Foodbanks? – Talk at Cardiff University

This is a reminder email about the following event taking place next week.A Right to Food? Beyond Foodbanks?

Niall Cooper, Church Action on Poverty and Geoff Tansey, Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty

Tuesday 15th March – 5.30pm

Committee Rooms 1&2, Glamorgan Building

Tackling the scandal of food poverty in 21st century britain

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, and the Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty have all called for stronger and more coordinated national and local government to take action to reduce food poverty.

This event is one of a series exploring 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 2016.  

We will link this event to the ongoing work on Food Security in Wales, particularly to the results of previous workshops taking place under the European research project TRANSMANGO. For more information on this particular project please contact Dr Ana Moragues MoraguesFausA1@cardiff.ac.uk
