Resources

The following resources offer further learning on the issues surrounding food poverty and how to take action, including webinars, sector briefings and action toolkits. As Food Power develops over three years we will generate more learning to share on these topics.

We have brought together a collection of food poverty action plans and needs assessments that have been published in different areas across the UK, and are also working with Sustainable Food Cities to develop a further library of food poverty resources and local initiatives.

Quick guide to monitoring and evaluation 

This briefing provides a quick summary of key principles and actions for monitoring and evaluation.

Mapping and measuring food poverty and the local response

This briefing highlights how a variety of areas in the UK have measured and mapped food poverty at the local level, as well how services have responded to this need.

Developing food poverty action plans

This short guide offers advice on drafting and delivering local food poverty action plans. The guide is based on analysis of a number of recently-produced local food poverty strategies or plans.

Meals on wheels: good practice case studies

The case studies produced by Sustain, Sustainable Food Cities and the National Association of Care Catering outline how these meals on wheels services are operated, the additional services or value which they provide beyond delivery of prepared meals, their local partnerships and hopes for the future.

Measuring household food insecurity in the UK

The UK currently does not measure household food insecurity, defined as insufficient or insecure access to food due to resource constraint. The absence of regular, accurate data keeps the magnitude of the problem hidden, allowing for government inaction.

Time to count the hungry: The case for a standard UK measure of household food insecurity

Time to count the hungry argues that the UK would benefit from using a standard measure of household food insecurity, which could be used to monitor the problem as part of existing social and health surveys.
