Putting food poverty in NI on the map

About this Event

Do you live in an area at risk of food poverty? This interactive workshop will present the findings of research looking at the experiences of rural dwellers in Northern Ireland suffering from food poverty. Hear the latest research findings on this societal problem, and give us your views so that we can shape further research in this area.

This interactive workshop will present research regarding the issue of food poverty for rural dwellers in Northern Ireland.

Food poverty is becoming recognised as a public health emergency and is defined as the inability to afford or access a healthy diet. This engaging half-day workshop will give participants some insight into areas at risk of food poverty using a newly founded concept ‘at risk of food poverty index’. The event is hosted by Natasha McClelland who is currently completing a multi-disciplinary PhD in rural food poverty with Ulster University, looking at target areas at risk of food poverty. We will engage with stakeholders, who represent vulnerable consumer subgroups and hear their lived experiences of food poverty. The event will promote the research, it’s importance, and garner ‘buy-in’ for the support of the implementation of the ‘at risk of food poverty index’, in identifying areas of greatest need to deliver targeted interventions.

This event is suitable for policy makers, local councils, third sector charities and non-government organisations.
