What is Bridging the Gap?
Bridging the Gap is exploring ways to enable people on low incomes to access climate and nature friendly food.
The programme will run pilots across the four nations to demonstrate what might be possible with government intervention. The pilots will be based around six approaches to bridge the gap that we co-produced with people working in food and farming. The evidence from the pilots will then be used to advocate for urgent national and local level policy change.
Sustain, Alexandra Rose Charity and Growing Communities working with Food Sense Wales, Nourish NI and Nourish Scotland 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.
