    End Hunger UK

    We’re really pleased that the Independent Food Aid Network is a core partner for Phase 2 of the End Hunger UK Campaign. End Hunger UK’s work so far has been significant in raising awareness of the UK food poverty crisis as well as long-term solutions to its root causes.

     

    How IFAN supports the vision of the End Hunger UK Phase 2 Campaign

    • IFAN fully endorses End Hunger UK's Menu to End Hunger in the UK and believes long-term solutions to poverty are far more likely to be developed through collaborative work. 
    • We are very much behind the three chosen priorities for Phase 2 of the Campaign - Child Food Insecurity; Welfare Reform and the Right to Food. 
    • We also fully support the EHUK campaign’s vision to achieving a long-term reduction in household food insecurity in the UK, to reduce the need for anyone having to turn to emergency food aid and to increase understanding of, and action to address, the underlying causes of hunger. 
    • We have been active in supporting the campaign’s efforts to establish an annual measurement of household food insecurity across the UK and will continue to be involved with its work to promote a Living Wage and to reduce the Poverty Premium. 
    • We believe the commitment of the campaign to grassroots engagement and the involvement of experts by experience will be key to the campaign’s success in bringing about structural changes. 

    Sustain: The Alliance for Better Food & Farming

    Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming advocates food and agriculture policies and practices that enhance the health and welfare of people and animals, improve the working and living environment, enrich society and culture and promote equity.

     

    IFAN's partnership with the Sustain alliance will continue to raise the issue that there needs to be determined action to prevent household insecurity and create more opportunity for policy and campaign activities.

    Scottish Food Coalition

    Working for a Just Transition to a Fair, Healthy and Sustainable ​Food System

    The Scottish Food Coalition aims to transform the food
    system in Scotland so that it contributes to everyone’s health and wellbeing, values the work it takes to put food on the plate, supports high animal welfare, and sustains wildlife, natural resources and environment for generations to come.

     

    They believe in working collaboratively to make a more significant impact on the way we produce, process, and eat food. Ultimately, using different strengths and focuses to work together for food justice.


    They are currently campaigning for a new law on the food system, a Good Food Nation Bill that takes a whole system approach, creating a coherent framework that ensures people's fundamental human rights and the integrity of our ecological home are promoted today and into the future.

    Global Network for Right to Food and Nutrition

     

    A Platform to Unify Struggles for All Human Rights

    The Global Network for the Right to Food and Nutrition is an initiative of public interest CSOs and social movements - peasants, fisherfolk, pastoralists, landless people, consumers, urban people living in poverty, agricultural and food workers, women, youth, and indigenous peoples - that recognize the need to act jointly for the realization of the right to adequate food and nutrition.

    A People's Food Policy

    Transforming our Food System

    The People’s Food Policy is a grassroots initiative developing recommendations for the food policies we would like to see . It is a collaboration between actors in the food sovereignty network and groups working for a more just and sustainable food system.

    They are working in collaboration with the leadership and experience of civil society organisations unions, non governmental organisations, community groups and citizens. IFAN is currently on their steering group.

    All Kids Count

    Child Poverty Action Group

    The All Kids Count campaign is fighting for every child's right to free health care, a good education, and a childhood free from poverty. Ultimately, they are calling for the government to lift the two-child limit so that families will be given the support they need from the social security system when they experience tough times.

    #5WeeksTooLong

    The Trussel Trust

    The #5WeeksTooLong campaign is in response to the growing number of people moving into Universal Credit. Every person who applies for this must wait at least five weeks for a first payment. This is leaving many without enough money to cover the basics and forcing people into foodbanks.

     

    This campaign is hoping to inspire people to "Join Together", "Build Pressure" and "Make Change".
