Funding to tackle food poverty

| 0 comments

The Fair Food Fund to help tackle food poverty in communities across Scotland will be doubled in 2016/17 to £1 million, the Scottish Government has announced. The fund aims to ‘tackle food inequalities in a more dignified and sustainable way’ by promoting alternatives to food bank dependency. It will help emergency food providers link with other local providers to deliver services that give people opportunities to access fresh and healthy food, share a meal, or develop new skills. The money will also support FareShare which redistributes surplus food to projects and charities.
