The Food Foundation
60 second overview
The Food Foundation is an independent think tank that tackles the growing challenges facing the UK’s food system. They influence policy to help support healthy and sustainable diets for everyone to tackle the UK’s profound dietary inequalities.
They join the dots on the food system and look for coherent responses which are sustainable for us and our planet. They also focus on people and consumers, prioritising those more susceptible to food poverty.
Our funding goes towards The Food Foundation’s work with school-aged, disadvantaged, children and young people living in London’s most deprived areas. The think tank is developing young people’s media and campaigning skills to contribute evidence and recommendations to a National Inquiry into child food insecurity, which hopes to secure national policy change.
