Food Power: Maintaining personal resilience and wellbeing during Covid-19

Webinar Tuesday 8 December 2020 14:00 00:00

To deliver for those in need we must also look after ourselves. Watch this Food Power webinar to learn how to do just that in the age of Covid-19.

“If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?”

Maya Angelou

This year, food poverty alliances, food partnerships, community organisations and many others delivered more meals, parcels and community food retail projects than ever before after demand skyrocketed in the wake of Covid-19. Yet to continue supporting those in need we must also make sure we're looking after ourselves. Amid a pandemic, with winter upon us and restrictions likely to continue for some time, how can we protect ourselves from burnout? In our webinar on 8 December we were joined by Peter Lefort, an expert in resilience and wellbeing who helped guide us through the resilience tree, a tool to build personal resilience but also to build stronger, more resilient teams
