Nourish Scotland + Poverty Truth Community

The Dignity in Practice project works alongside community food groups and organisations to explore the detail of what promoting and enhancing dignity looks like in community food provision.

Communities cannot be held responsible for, or bear the disproportionate burden of, food insecurity in Scotland, but, with appropriate support, the community food sector is well placed to respond to current crises and promote and restore dignity at a local level. We believe that ending household food insecurity and becoming a Good Food Nation requires all of us to work together. We will need both national action to secure decent incomes and the strategic and coordinated development of community food infrastructure to deliver on health and social inclusion.
