Our theme for this year is Increasing access to healthy affordable food
People on low incomes need to be able to access to low cost, healthy food. However, many people living in poverty do not have a car and cuts to public transport, particularly in rural areas, makes it difficult for families to access cheaper supermarkets. Even in towns access is an issue for those without their own transport. There are many community solutions which can help.
We will be running a workshop on increasing access to healthy affordable food early next year. Please register your interest here.
