Developing an action plan to tackle food poverty

Local food poverty action plans allow local authorities and their partners to work together to identify risks, assess current provision and coordinate action. The plans allow information to be shared, enable partners to learn from each other, make effective use of available funds and other resources, and avoid duplication. Those involved can achieve more by acting together than they could by acting separately. There are different approaches to creating food poverty action plans and the extent and reach of actions within a plan vary according to local ambitions and available resources and other support. We use 'food poverty action plan' as a catch-all term, other titles include 'food security plan' or 'food access plan'.
