Healthy food for all
Everyone should have access to local, affordable quality food and the knowledge and skills to cook good food. We are closely aligned to Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance (SFPA), a multi-agency partnership, which leads on actions to tackle food poverty in the county. SGFP will:
Work closely with SFPA to support their work and create links to wider partnership initiatives.
Support local initiatives for food poverty related activities, seeking funds to provide community grants.
Develop initiatives to build cooking skills with vulnerable groups.
The Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance
SFPA was formed by a consortium of organisations who are committed to work together to tackle food poverty and to ensure everyone in Shropshire:
Has access to sufficient good food
Be able to afford a healthy diet
Have the skills and knowledge to prepare healthy food
SFPA membership includes public, faith and voluntary organisations including food banks from across the county. The Alliance is currently being co-ordinated by Shrewsbury Food Hub, with a steering group of organisations including Citizens Advice Shropshire, Shropshire Council, NHS, Age UK and the Food Banks.
