The Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance was formed in January 2018 by a consortium of organisations who are committed to work together to tackle food poverty in Shropshire. Our 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.
The Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance aims are to:
- Tackle food poverty and diet related ill health
Promote a healthy and sustainable diet
Build community food skills and knowledge
Increase access to affordable healthy food
Ensure there is crisis and emergency support so that people do not go hungry
Get food poverty (particularly rural) on the local and national policy agenda
Research and monitor food poverty so we know if we are being effective
