How Industry Can Help

Food poverty is a growing problem and it is a startling fact that one in ten people in Greater Manchester skip meals so other family members can eat.

What can we do?
The Manchester Evening News and Kellogg’s are hosting an event on Friday 21 June to discuss food poverty in Greater Manchester and asking what local industry can do to help tackle this problem in our own city.

Joining the debate, chaired by Eamonn O’Neal, Managing Editor of the Manchester Evening News, will be...

— Kate Green, MP for Stretford and Urmston, Shadow spokesperson for Equalities
— Jonathan Myers, Managing Director, Kellogg's UK
— Rob Irvine, Editor in Chief, Manchester Evening News
— Adrian Curtis, Foodbank Network Director, The Trussell Trust
Richard Mason,Corporate Responsibility Manager, ASDA

Prof. Eileen Fairhurst, Professor in Public Health, Salford University and Greater Manchester Poverty Commissioner

You are invited to come along to hear from guest speakers and take part in a roundtable debate. We look forward to starting this important discussion with you.
