Event description

Description

Do you share a vision of a Britain in which everyone has access to good food and no one need go to bed hungry?

Hungry Britain: The Rise of Food Charity


Dr Hannah Lambie Mumford, Research Fellow, Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute will be talking about her new book 'Hungry Britain: The Rise of Food Charity.'

As the welfare state withdraws, leaving food banks to protect the most vulnerable, Hannah Lambie Mumford questions the sustainability of this system and asks where responsibility lies - in practice and in theory - for ensuring everyone can realise their human right to food.

Drawing on empirical research with the UK's two largest charitable food organisations, Hannah's new book 'Hungry Britain: The Rise of Food Charity' explores the prolific rise of food charity over the last 15 years and its implications for overcoming food insecurity.

End Hunger UK: Next steps for the campaign


Niall Cooper, Director, Church Action on Poverty will be talking about the next steps for the End Hunger UK campaign.

Do you think that children should be able to live free from the damaging impacts of hunger on their health, attainment and opportunity? Do you believe that families should be able to afford good food on a regular basis through an appropriate combination of work and benefits?

Do you want to be part of a powerful national campaign to make this happen?

Hear more about the next steps for the End Hunger UK campaign, backed amongst others by Church Action on Poverty, Oxfam, Sustain, Trussell Trust, Fareshare, Magic Breakfast and Child Poverty Acton Group.

Meet with other folk from across West Yorkshire, and find out how you can get involved.
