Cost of living crisis- where to find help

Building links with town and parish councils

Over the past few weeks the Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance, along with the Shropshire Good Food Partnership, have been presenting at town and parish council meeting. We have spoken about the work of the two organisations, what can be done locally to support the most vulnerable in our communities and how we can build a fairer food system for people, place and planet. If your town/ parish council or community group would be interested in learning more about our work please get in touch.
