Launched in July 2015, the Feeding Derbyshire alliance continues to pilot sustainable solutions to address food insecurity across the county. Our vision is a Derbyshire where no-one goes hungry, a county where everyone has access to good quality, affordable food.
Derbyshire is one of the original Feeding Britain pilot areas, and our alliance works strategically to respond to the dynamic socio-economic landscape within which it operates.
Feeding Derbyshire seeks to help those struggling with low incomes, debt and poor access to affordable, nutritious food. We aim to reduce the negative impact of hunger by working to ensure our projects are inclusive and reach the most vulnerable people in the county. We intend to give families and individuals the confidence and capacity to be self-reliant, able to meet their own and their children’s needs.
The Feeding Derbyshire partnership is headed by Rural Action Derbyshire working with the Diocese of Derby, Derbyshire County Council, FareShare East Midlands, the Citizens Advice Bureau and Community Voluntary Services across the Boroughs and Districts of the county.
Feeding Derbyshire holds regular Food Poverty Forums. For more information about the next event please follow the link below:
