Glasgow City Council is holding an inquiry into food poverty and inequality across the city and is seeking evidence and views on this important subject.
The Council is aware increasing numbers of people in Glasgow are experiencing difficulties – physically and economically – accessing sufficient, safe and nutritious food. It also knows of a wide range of organisations and charities are responding to those experiencing acute food insecurity – including an established community food sector. It wishes to work with these partners and organisations across Glasgow to ensure the city is operating these responses and services as effectively as possible.
Your views and any evidence you may have are sought in relation to:
- The scale of food inequality in the city
- What steps we can take to prevent food inequality
- How we make best use of existing services and approaches
- What the city can do to invest in longer term sustainable solutions
- Associated projects and initiatives tackling food poverty across the city
Please send your views and any available evidence to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The consultation is open until Friday 9th November 2018.
Feedback is due to be published by 31st January 2019.
