Advocacy and Food Insecurity

Wednesday 6 September, 1 – 3pm

Webinar recording – for privacy reasons this recording is not available on YouTube but if you registered for this event and would like a copy of the recording sent to you, please email Sarah: sarah@realfarming.org

A free online session to help you think about how and why we might enable people who have experience of food insecurity to have a voice in our projects, in our communities or more widely in society.

We will think about how to be sensitive about exposure, confidence, sources of help, how to enable people to find their message, safeguarding, creating opportunities to speak, choice of formats (for example, video or photo) and there will be time for individual questions. We will include some case studies.

Speakers will include Annette Thomas from the Food Foundation, an experienced food advocate, and community groups with experience of supporting people to speak up and take control.

Who should come?

This webinar is for you if you are involved in a food project, if you wonder what food sovereignty means, if you want solidarity in food projects or if you want policy and planning to be well informed.
