Food insecurity and nutrition

Ensure good food and nutrition for all.

Everyone should have access to healthy, tasty, affordable food which enables them to live an active and healthy life. Our focus will be people who don’t have enough good quality, healthy food and experience what is called food insecurity. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the impact of food insecurity on communities, particularly on children.

Over the next four years we will:

  • Enable residents to be able to access to healthy, tasty, affordable food which should also be positive for the environment and the local economy.
  • Tackle food insecurity and make sure that vulnerable residents have access to good food.
