Health & Wellbeing Case Study

Helping to tackle food poverty:

Food insecurity has been a top priority for our members, especially during the pandemic. Community food organisations have faced unprecedented demand for their services alongside challenges in terms of their income streams. Fusion21 Foundation have collaborated with Business in the Community to bring businesses in the Midlands together to partner with community organisations who build community resilience through food – from community growing projects, to pantries, community shops, community cafés, and cooking classes.

The project will seek to improve the sustainability of community food projects and to increase their ability to tackle the root causes of food poverty by drawing upon the experience and expertise of the community, private, not-for-profit and government sectors.
