Ending the need for emergency food aid in Scotland – together
October 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
With the need for emergency food at a record high, the impact of the Universal Credit cut as well as increases in energy and food prices are about to make things even worse.
For this Challenge Poverty Week, the Independent Food Aid Network (IFAN) and the Trussell Trust have organised this event to explore how food aid providers in Scotland can work together to help end food poverty and the need for emergency food aid for good.
We will be joined by a range of panellists working in this area – full speaker details will be confirmed shortly. We hope the event will be an opportunity to discuss what needs to happen in Scotland to ensure everyone can afford the basic essentials and how we can make this happen. Together.
