We are now only three weeks away from our forthcoming 2nd UK research conference on food and poverty: Evidence for change. The conference takes place over the 23rd-24th June and will be hosted virtually. Details of the conference programme are available here and the deadline to register is fast approaching: 12th June. Please find the link to register here. Registration fees are just £15 for two days and £10 for students.
The conference will focus on highlighting the evidence base which demonstrates the need for action on food insecurity but also on how and what research evidence can be change-making. Our aim for the conference is to build understanding on how household food insecurity research can make a difference to policy, practice, and lived experience. We hope you can join us!
Our research and advocacy manager Imogen Richmond Bishop will be delivering a workshop on Immigration Policies: Enforcing Borders, Driving Hunger and Creating Destitution alongside Abi Brunswick from Project 17, Kimberly Garande from We Belong, Andy Jolly from Wolverhampton University, and Jasber Singh from Coventry University’s Centre for Agroecology, Water, and Resiliance. This event will be chaired by Sara Bailey.
