Event description

Description


As almost a fifth of the UK population live in poverty and emergency food access is increasing year-on-year, our event reports on the temporal experience of austerity and food access exclusion in the Greater Manchester and city of Birmingham regions with the purpose of helping vulnerable individuals to navigate their way out of food poverty.

This event is hosted by SHUSU at the University of Salford, together with Huddersfield Business School and Birmingham Business School. Sponsored by British Academy/Leverhulme, the event aims to bring together stakeholders across business, government, charities, academia and society to discuss key questions around food poverty and poverty in general.

In addition to disseminating our key findings and policy summaries from local government, the event features an open Q&A panel with leading thinkers from Greater Manchester Poverty Action, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Birmingham Food Council and Salford City Council.

Refreshments are provided on arrival and midway through the event.

Conference Chairs: Prof. Morven McEachern; Dr Caroline Moraes; Prof. Lisa Scullion; and Dr Andrea Gibbons.
