South Wales Food Poverty Alliance

Food poverty in Wales is unacceptable. Our vision is to enable all individuals, families and communities in Wales to have secure access to affordable, nutritious and sustainable food daily, which makes up a socially and culturally acceptable diet and the skills and knowledge to properly enjoy such food and to advocate for the reduction in household food insecurity in order to respect, protect and fulfil the right to food.
