How Do We Feed Children And Keep Families Connected During The School Holidays?

About this event

You are warmly invited to join a gathering for everyone who cares about answering this question.

• What can we do when families in Gloucestershire are having to choose between food and heating?

• How can we organise the food system better to create long-term solutions instead of sticking plasters on the problem?

• How can we use the existing assets in communities to make that happen?

• Can we really solve food poverty without tackling other cost of living increases?

You may think these questions hit the nail on the head - or that they are entirely missing the point.

Either way come along as this event is designed so you decide what gets talked about. And what you listen to.

Run as an ‘Open Space’ gathering, our aim is to create a welcoming atmosphere that encourages imaginative conversation, new connections and ideas for real action.

When Monday 25 April, 10am-4pm. Coffee from 9.30 am

Where Churchdown Community Association, Parton Road, Churchdown, Gloucester GL3 2JH

Cost FREE including lunch

This is an invitation to anyone who feels passionate about this question. You may be a local resident, a grassroots community organiser, a professional in health, education or social care, or a social entrepreneur. The bigger the mix of people in the room, the easier it will be to come up with answers that can really work.


Run as an ‘Open Space’ gathering, the day will be imaginative and provocative, but also relaxed. Coffee/tea will be available from 9.30am and the event open at 10.00am.

There will be a welcoming atmosphere, free refreshments and lunch. While there will be lots of opportunity for conversation, it’s not just words – Open Space leads to action, and new relationships that will help you take ideas forwards.

This event is the first in a series of conversations hosted by the Healthy Communities Together (HCT) programme with investment from The Kings Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund. Gloucestershire’s HCT is about improving health and wellbeing and reducing health Inequalities by building trust and creating opportunities to experiment with bold new ideas.


HCT is fully subsidising this event, so places are free.
