VS6 Sustainable and Affordable Food Assembly in June 2022

Is your organisation working to improve access to sustainable and affordable food in Liverpool City Region? Are you a voluntary, community, faith or social enterprise organisation supporting LCR residents to access food? Do you run a community farm, allotment or centre that grows, supplies and/or distributes affordable, healthy food in LCR?

If any of the above sound familiar for your organisation, it would be great to share your knowledge and insights of how we can develop a Liverpool City Region where everyone has access to affordable and sustainable food. VS6 Partnership, in collaboration with LCR Combined Authority, are holding an Affordable and Sustainable Food Assembly event in June to develop innovative and community focused solutions to food insecurity, with a view to supporting the developing of an LCR Food Poverty Reduction Strategy.

This event follows on from the first Sustainable and Affordable Food Assembly (2020) held with the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector and hosted by VS6 in collaboration with LCR Combined Authority which explored the issues and challenges facing LCR in developing access to sustainable and healthy food, particularly through the lens of COVID-19.

Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to provide their expert insights into how we can develop a more accessible and sustainable food system across LCR that will form the initial development of an LCR Food Poverty Reduction Strategy. Additionally, attendees will also be updated on progress of the previous assembly recommendations from 2020, VS6 work so far on mapping community food organisations across LCR and have an opportunity to be a part of the development of an LCR Food Network.

The event is being held online via Zoom on 16th June 2022, 1:30 – 4pm.
