About Feeding Derbyshire

Launched in July 2015, the Feeding Derbyshire alliance continues to pilot sustainable solutions to help feed people who are struggling with low incomes, debt and insufficient access to good quality, nutritious food.

Derbyshire is one of the original Feeding Britain pilot areas, and works strategically to respond to the dynamic socio-economic landscape within which they work.

#The Feeding Derbyshire partnership is headed by us, Rural Action Derbyshire working with the Diocese of Derby, Citizens Advice and Community Voluntary Services across the Boroughs and Districts, FareShare East Midlands and Derbyshire County Council. 

Feeding Derbyshire aims to improve accessibility to good quality, affordable food and reduce the negative impact of hunger by ensuring projects and initiatives are inclusive and reach the most vulnerable people in the county.  They aim to give individuals and families the confidence and capacity to lead lives of self-reliance and meet their own and their children’s basic needs.
