Feeding Liverpool was set up in 2015 as a local pilot of Feeding Britain, an independent charity which was established following the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Hunger in the United Kingdom in 2014. Their report Feeding Britain: A Strategy for Zero Hunger in England, Wales Scotland and Northern Irelandresonated with the situation on the ground in Liverpool.
Feeding Liverpool was first established through Churches Together in the Merseyside Region – it continues to be an ecumenical group, working with people of all faiths and none. We do not provide food provision ourselves – but many of our partner organisations do.
Over the last three years Feeding Liverpool has brought together those concerned with hunger and food insecurity in Liverpool.
We have done this through organising practitioner meetings to share information and good practice, and half day conferences which bring together faith leaders, local and national politicians, public sector officials and voluntary organisations.
