VS6 Sustainable and Affordable Food Assembly Report

In October last year the VS6 Partnership organised and hosted the Sustainable and Affordable Food Assembly in partnership with Together Liverpool as part of a series of assembly events with the VCFSE sector.  The assembly was an opportunity to start to think strategically about how we might develop a sustainable and affordable food plan for the region, and to think beyond emergency provision towards what individuals, organisations and governance can do to make real social change happen.  They are therefore pleased to introduce to you the latest VS6 Assembly Report (see attached) summarising the feedback from the Sustainable and Affordable Food Assembly which provides “the first steps toward a vision for a sustainable and affordable food plan for the Liverpool City Region”.

As per the previous assembly reports, the recommendations within this report are born from the knowledge and expertise shared by the attendees at the assembly event and feedback received from attendees on the draft report to really put the voice of the VCFSE sector centre stage.  Following on from this report, they will use the recommendations to further conversations around the issue of food sustainability and affordability in the region with the Combined Authority and to form the foundations of a whole system approach to tackling food poverty and food insecurity in Merseyside.

They hope that you find the report useful and will share it within your networks. Please keep an eye out on their website and social media for promotional messages which we would encourage you to interact with and share.  Additionally, VS6 will be looking to organise more assemblies throughout 2021 covering a variety of topics so please keep an eye out on the website to get involved with these.

If you have any questions about the Report then please contact our VS6 Policy and Research Officer, laura.tilston@vsnw.org.uk
