As part of London Challenge Poverty week, this Sustain webinar will share the lessons learnt from Food Power, a people-powered project which supported 80 food poverty alliances to take coordinated approaches to tackle food poverty across the UK.

Through developing food poverty alliances and action plans; learning and sharing good practice; involving experts by experience; and evidencing what works at the local level, communities have come together to move beyond the food bank to begin building food justice for their communities.

This webinar is for everyone, because everyone can help tackle food poverty. Whether you’re a funder, community group, food partnership, community garden, local authority, business, academic or interested individual, you can make food justice a reality in London and beyond. This webinar will give you an idea of how.

Speakers include:

  • Simon Shaw, Head of Food Power programme, Sustain
  • Samantha Foster, Haringey Food Network Coordinator, Bridge Renewal Trust
  • Others TBC

Closed captions will be available at this event. Please let us know if you have additional access requirements.
