Transitioning ‘from food aid to food trade’ to provide healthy, affordable, planet-friendly food for all.
What is Bridging the Gap?
Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, the Bridging the Gap programme will demonstrate ways to build better supply chains between climate and nature friendly food and people on a lower income.
Key to our approach is identifying what works and advocating for financial interventions and other mechanisms to enable this to continue.
Sustain, Alexandra Rose Charity and Growing Communities working with Food Sense Wales, and Nourish Northern Ireland are bringing together organisations united in the belief that everyone has the right to healthy and affordable food that works for the planet.
Bridging the Gap is addressing big complex issues and we want to harness the collective experience and insights of the movement to help co-create the solutions. We want to ensure a 'spirit of enquiry' is embedded into the programme, alongside research and advocacy to overcome the financial, structural and other barriers to change.
We will work with the good food movement to co-create, model and roll-out solutions focused on food trade and supply chains, supported by research and advocacy to overcome the financial, structural and other barriers to change.
