This toolkit provides guidance and case studies on empowering people with lived experience of food poverty to make change happen.
There is currently a lack of voice for grassroots people, those who are experiencing food poverty and hunger, their peers and allies within their community, both within the sector and more widely within society. We believe individuals with direct experience at a grassroots level should play an active role in identifying and advocating for long term solutions to the issues they face. By doing this, projects, policy, support and interventions are better designed for the people they are designed to help. Put simply, it’s about giving those at a grassroots level the power they are too often denied, to make change happen.
