Led by Asda, in this Seeing is Believing visit we’ll highlight the increasing problem of food poverty in the UK and explore the breadth of the challenge facing communities today.
Right now, in the UK 8.4 million people are struggling to afford to eat. One in 10 people in the UK are missing meals to pay their bills and one in four of those are children. And yet, four million tonnes of perfectly decent food is wasted each year in the UK (source: Asda). We cannot accept food being wasted whilst people in our communities go hungry. Earlier this year Asda joined forces with FareShare and The Trussell Trust to develop a truly innovative new partnership that will revolutionise the support foodbanks in the UK are able to offer people in food poverty.
Breakfast on arrival. Lunch will be included.
The visit starts at 08:00 and will finish at the same location at 14:30. Speakers and visits include: FairShare, The Trussell Trust, Asda, Emsleys and St Vincents Support Centre.
