Feeding Liverpool is the city of Liverpool’s food alliance, connecting and equipping people and organisations to work towards good food for all.
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 Ireland resonated with the situation on the ground in Liverpool.
Feeding Liverpool was first established through Churches Together in the Merseyside Region and has been led by an ecumenical group working with people of all faiths and none. Our work has centred on bringing together those concerned with hunger and food insecurity in Liverpool.
Since 2019 Feeding Liverpool have been able to grow and develop through a partnership with Together Liverpool, who have supported the network through the role of Dr Naomi Maynard, our Good Food Programme Director.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Feeding Liverpool played a key role in the procurement and distribution of food supplies to support and sustain the work of emergency food providers in Liverpool, leading to the Covid Response Project and the Winter Boost project.
We have been part of the City’s Food Insecurity taskforce, responding to the pandemic and working towards the first stages of Liverpool’s Good Food Plan
In 2021 and beyond, Feeding Liverpool will develop and drive forward the Good Food Plan in partnership with people and organisations across the city.
