Launch - Food Poverty Action Plan for Greater Manchester

Low incomes and high costs mean many people are struggling to put food on the table, and a healthy, balanced diet is even further from their reach. There are now over 170 food banks and other social food providers across Greater Manchester and it is time for a more coordinated approach to ensure no one goes hungry.

The Greater Manchester Food Poverty Alliance has been working with over 100 people and organisations from every borough in Greater Manchester to co-produce this Food Poverty Action Plan. It will be a comprehensive set of aims and actions, for our city region to begin the long-term task of eradicating food poverty.

Join us as we launch the Food Poverty Action Plan for Greater Manchester, and find out the role that you can play in making this vision a reality.
