Feeding Kirklees: Working together to find a sustainable local approach to food insecurity Meeting Notes & Slides
This event, organised by TSL Kirklees in partnership with Kirklees Council, aimed to bring together anyone interested in creating a Kirklees where everyone has equal access to food.
We want to bring together new grassroots groups, food banks, food growing, sharing and redistribution schemes, and Mutual Aid Groups who've been supporting people in lockdown with food parcels, shopping and food delivery services, established organisations who feed & support people in crisis or poverty, including housing, clothing and food schemes and local & national experts.
We heard from a variety of local groups, both large and small, talking about their experiences including a range of different initiatives from around the UK, including:
Feeding Britain - creating a local partnership to tackle the root causes of hunger
The Bread and Butter Thing - redistributing surplus food
Community Shop - social & membership supermarkets
