    About the StoryBank Project

    IFAN initiated the StoryBank project through written testimony but plans have since developed and we're working to gather a collection of stories that can be heard. We hope to add stories, recorded in a variety of food aid settings, to our StoryBank page in the coming months.

    IFAN was awarded funding by LUSH to develop a StoryBank documenting first-hand people's experiences of food poverty, food aid and living with food insecurity. It's estimated that more than 8.4 million people live with food insecurity in the UK but it's unusual to hear the real voices of those affected by Britain's rapidly growing food poverty crisis.
    If you would like to find out more about the project, please contact Sabine Goodwin at ifanconnect@gmail.com. We'd also be really glad to hear from you if your food aid organisation would like to get involved.
    The StoryBank will become an online resource for anyone wanting to find out more about food insecurity. As we collect our first stories we will be developing a tool kit involving guidance and release forms so that frontline organisations will be able collect oral testimony themselves. More details will be available soon.
