Autumn Emergency Food Network Gathering 2023

Feeding Liverpool are inviting organisations providing emergency and community food support in Liverpool to join us at our Autumn Emergency Food Network Gathering. We will bring together organisations to listen, learn, share and make connections, as we work towards creating a city where everyone can eat good food

You will hear from emergency food providers and learn about their organisations, their success and any challenges they are facing. There will also be an opportunity to share your experiences and ask questions too.

This session will be focusing on how our food spaces can prepare to face the challenges of winter – a time when all of our organisations come under increased pressure as demand rises.

We would encourage each organisation providing emergency or community food support to send a representative to this session.

Teas and Coffees provided.

Who: Organisations providing emergency and community food in the City of Liverpool

When: Tuesday 17th October at 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Where: Tuebrook Hope Centre, Christ Church Buckingham Rd, Tuebrook, Liverpool, L13 8AZ

Hunger March – 23rd September 2023

Join the Hunger March on Saturday 23rd September, taking place at 12 noon at St George’s Hall steps!

In a country as wealthy as the UK, hunger is a political choice. Whilst many cities have copied Liverpool’s example and voted to become Right to Food Cities, there is a lack of national leadership to address food insecurity. Feeding Liverpool are joining the Right to Food Campaign in an emulation of the unemployed workers movements in the 1920s-1940s which mobilised unemployed workers, trade unions and civil society to call for national action to end hunger.

Feeding Liverpool want to support Community Food Spaces to get involved in the Right to Food Week of Action and join the march.

 Ideas to get people from your food space engaged could be:

  • Holding a banner making session to create materials for the march on the 23rd
  • Deciding on a meet up point to join the St George’s Hall rally together with your members and banner
  • Using your social media to promote the march and Right to Food graphics use #RightToFood #RTFWeek2023 #HungerMarchLiverpool
  • Creating a video from your community food space explaining why the Right to Food is important for members
  • Holding a Right to Food stall at your community food space to talk to others
  • Contacting your local schools, community groups and workplaces to make connections and get them involved

If you are interested in getting involved in the week of action, mobilising for the Liverpool Hunger March or want to find out more, check out our website or email [email protected]
