Tackling food poverty through people-powered change

Food Power is a new initiative from Church Action on Poverty, in partnership with Sustain. Our aim is to support the development of more coordinated, long-term and sustainable approaches to tackling food poverty in local communities.

We work with local communities to strengthen their ability to reduce food poverty, with the support of their peers from other communities. We establish and support ‘food poverty alliances’ that respond to food poverty and its root causes; amplify the voices of people experiencing food poverty; and evaluate and share what works well.

If you’re involved in a network tackling food poverty in your area, and you want to have a bigger impact on the root causes of food poverty, Food Power may be able to help you!
