Tackling food poverty through people-powered change

Food Power supports local communities to tackle food poverty in coordinated, long-term and sustainable ways. It’s a joint programme run by Church Action on Poverty in partnership with Sustain.

  • 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!

I got so used to being hungry that I just thought, "That's life."
