Liz takes on role to tackle food poverty in Leicester

[02/08/2018 | No comment]

I was honoured to have been invited to chair the Feeding Leicester Steering Group. Feeding Leicester is a really important project that will raise awareness of food poverty throughout the city and find ways to make sure everyone can access healthy and affordable food.

Lots of local organisations are involved in the project including De Montfort University, the City Council, Feeding Britain, Action Homeless, B-Inspired and many more.

Over the coming months we’ll be working together to find new ways to support local people who are struggling to make ends meet.

As part of the Feeding Leicester project we have also been awarded additional funding to expand the holiday hunger programme. This means that this year over 22,000 meals will be given out to children from right across the city over the summer holidays.

I am proud to be part of this project and I look forward to updating you on our work over the months ahead.
