Feeding Coventry is happy to announce that it has publicly launched the Coventry Food Charter.

The Food Charter is the final result of research that has been taking place since June 2016 through to March of this year about the present and future of food in Coventry.

The launch event took place on Thursday 16 November in the Great Hall in St Mary’s Guildhall.

The charter sets out a vision for what we can do about food poverty if we work together. The charter recognises the need to address emergency food crises and the development of a sustainable and secure food system. It also looks at how we achieve food justice and how central the right to food is for people in the city.

The event hosted speeches from Lor Mayor Councillor Tony Skipper and other key speakers, with presentations and activities for attendees to get involved in. Guests also had conversations collectively around the state of food poverty in Coventry and the need for interventions.

The event gave people the opportunity to learn more about the Charter and how it was developed. There were also be talks about ongoing projects and attendees were able to share their ideas about the future of food in the city.

Chair of Feeding Coventry and Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care at Coventry City Council, Councillor Faye Abbott, has said: “it was a fantastic opportunity to launch the Coventry Food Charter in an important event that has allowed us to look at the work we have all done together to address food in Coventry and talk to one another about what we need to focus on moving forward.

“The launch of this important work was a great opportunity for us to come together and look at more ways to address food poverty and sustainability in Coventry.”
