We are planning a one day community discussion around Food Poverty on Monday 1st December 2014 from 9.30am-2.30pm. It will take place at West Pilton Neighbourhood Centre
(19 West Pilton Grove, EH4 4BY).
We aim to explore how we can work together to tackle food poverty in the area.
At this event you will get the chance to:
- Find out more about the current levels of food poverty in Scotland and the issues that can lead to food poverty.
- Showcase some of the good work taking place to tackle food poverty.
- Network with local groups and organisations that you could work in north Edinburgh.
- Discuss ways to move forward to tackle food poverty in north Edinburgh.
With key note speakers:
Bill Gray, Community Food and Health (Scotland) - What is food poverty? A human rights approach to food and what is the scale of the problem nationally.
Mary Anne MacLeod, Poverty Alliance - What makes a good food poverty intervention? Best practice from around Scotland.
Lucy Aitchison, Broomhouse Health Strategy Group – inspiration from an Edinburgh based foodbank.
What next? Our discussions on the day will be recorded and included in a manifesto for change to tackle food poverty in north Edinburgh.
