Food Resilience

“Building Food Resilience” A Toolkit to Support Pathways to Independence

FoodWise is co-producing a ‘Building Food Resilience Toolkit‘ with local food aid providers to improve the quality, effectiveness, scale and impact of our work to tackle food insecurity in the city.

In March we held a workshop with food aid providers to gather their insight and experience of providing emergency food provision during the pandemic. In April we held a second workshop and heard from food aid providers and how they are transitioning their community food offer away from crisis support towards building food resilience and a more sustainable, longer-term offer including food pantries, clubs, recipe stations and more.

Both webinars are available below.

Webinar 1 March 18th This session provides an overview of food aid provision in Leeds and introduces the concepts of food resilience and food citizenship.

Webinar 2 April 21st In this webinar we hear from Food Power, Fareshare Yorkshire and Rethink Food. We also learn about specific projects including New Wortley Community Centre, Health for All, Family Action, BARCA, Inn Churches and Holbeck Together.
