Food Justice Conference

Join us online for the East of England Food Justice Conference on the 17th & 18th November 2020

Making sure everyone has access to the food they need has been an issue that has very much come to the fore over the last few months not least with the campaign led by Manchester United and England footballer Marcus Rashford. 

As a community retailer, we have been moved by the many groups and charities that have stepped up during the last few months to ensure those in need in our communities have access to healthy nutritional food.

This November, we will be bringing together representatives from charities, community groups and local authorities as part of a free online conference to discuss the issue of food justice and what can be done going forward to tackle the issue of food poverty in the East of England.  

Run over two days you can attend as much or as little as you like. Guest speakers including Tessa Ticks, Hubbub and Charlotte Bale, Ipswich Community Support, and panellists including Tristan Easey, Community 360, Lucy Webb, Norwich Food Poverty Alliance and Philip Aves, Lowestoft Rising will be looking at;

  • how organisations have risen to the challenge of providing access to food over the last few months 
  • what the likely ongoing impact of the pandemic will have on people’s ability to access the food they need  
  • how sustainable local community support will be in the medium to long term 
  • how charities, agencies and retailers can work together better and improve outcomes for people in food poverty 

 Who should attend;  

  • CICs, community groups and charities that are operating programmes that provide access to food and sustainable solutions to food poverty
  • ​Local government representatives
