For several years, citizens of Coventry have been struggling with significant problems of malnutrition, food poverty, and limited access to nutritional food. This has been highlighted in the well-publicised expansion of the work of the Coventry Food Bank.
In response to this, the Feeding Coventry Working Group was established in 2016 with the twin objectives of identifying, encouraging and delivering the most effective measures available to combat food crisis while working towards achieving universal food and nutrition security.
Feeding Coventry is an independent charity working towards a hunger-free Coventry by 2020 and the development of sustainable and just food policies.
Feeding Coventry is made up of community organisers, academics, City Council representatives, and local business people. Since 2016, the group have been developing local projects designed to prevent and relieve hunger, and to support reforms at a national level to reduce the nation’s vulnerability to hunger.
Feeding Coventry is a member of Feeding Britain.
