Tackling food poverty through people-powered change
Food Power ran from 2017 to 2021, supporting local communities to tackle food poverty in coordinated, long-term and sustainable ways. It was a joint programme run by Church Action on Poverty in partnership with Sustain.
- We worked with local communities to strengthen their ability to reduce food poverty, with the support of their peers from other communities.
- We established and supported ‘food poverty alliances’ that respond to food poverty and its root causes; amplify the voices of people experiencing food poverty; and evaluated and shared what works well.
Food poverty alliances continue with this work even though the main programme has now finished – and we made an impact in all sorts of other ways too. You can watch the Food Power story and see other resources below.
