The Women’s Institute’s local engagement on food poverty

29 March 2018

At the beginning of April all local Women Institute (WI) groups will receive a hard-copy of a campaign toolkit which asks them to organise debates in their communities to learn more about the problem of food poverty. As part of these debates, WI members will consider what steps need to be taken to ensure everyone has access to affordable, healthy food. They will also consider what actions they can take in their communities.

The National Federation of Women's Institutes are encouraging them to get in contact with local food poverty stakeholders, such as local food partnerships, to involve them in these debates. You may want to reach out now to your local WIs offering to get involved.
