Food, charity and the boardroom – diving deeper [online workshop]

how can we unlock progress in addressing root causes of household food insecurity?

This follow-on ONLINE workshop will build on previous Business Forums exploring ways food companies can, and should, address root causes of household food insecurity

This third and final session in this series will dive deeper into one of the key roles – employer, charity partner, community-building partner or collaborator & advocate – that those working in food companies find most challenging when it comes to food and poverty. Based on feedback from participants, we will focus on the role as collaborator and advocate. The online workshop will provide a space to:

  • briefly reflect on what participants/ their organisations have done in the past few months to address household food insecurity
  • explore what is preventing more being done, particularly to address root causes
  • consider who is experimenting on this and how to build on that and unlock greater progress
  • develop practical ideas for what participants can try – individually and collectively

This Business Forum will take a workshop format. It will be facilitated by Dan Crossley, Executive Director, working with Beth Bell, Food citizenship coordinator (both at the Food Ethics Council) and Dr Hannah Lambie-Mumford, Research Fellow at SPERI (Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute), University of Sheffield, author of ‘Hungry Britain: The Rise of Food Charity‘ & co-author of ‘The Rise of Food Charity in Europe‘.
