UK Food Liaison was a programme run in collaboration with the government's Food Standards Agency for the benefit of Food Access Network members from across the UK. These networking seminars brought together community projects, nutritionists, public health workers and many others, on a variety of topics related to food access.

For many,  these events provided the environment to exchange information with other people doing similar work, and a great opportunity to focus on specific aspects of engaging with communities on food issues. UK Liaison 2007 themes included families with children aged 0 to 5; community food retailing; and healthy diets on a low income. Our events in 2008 were on food access and older people.


Feedback from these events was very positive, with members telling us they valued the opportunity to share good practice, and to debate the successes and challenges of food access with colleagues from around the UK.


Key partners in the programme were:

Food Access Network: The Food Access Network (FAN-UK) was formerly the Food Poverty project, and is now superseded by the Local Action on Food Network. These archive pages give background information on the activities of FAN-UK, which worked to tackle diet-related ill health amongst the UKs most disadvantaged communities.
