Twenty young people from Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio, Blackburn Central High School & St Thomas’s participated in the Future Food Inquiry. The group included young people working with Food Power
The young people shared their experiences and views about food insecurity, what food insecurity looks like in their area, what their experiences are and what they thought needs to happen to improve things for young people like them. The evidence gathered will be collated into a report with findings from other young people from across the UK and there will also be a ‘listening event’ in Westminster as part of the Parliamentary inquiry into children's food security.
The workshop allowed for Food Power experts by experience to have further influence whilst bringing new young people into the conversation, some of whom want to continue activity within their schools. The event also provided another opportunity to show the short film made by Aaron Dunleavy with young people from Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio in which they talk about their experiences of food poverty.
Food Power hopes to support the Inquiry who are working with young people's organisation Fixers in delivering two more workshops in Newcastle and Hull, both areas in which Food Power are supporting alliances to empower those with lived experience of food poverty in becoming experts.
