    Cash First Project

    Between June and November 2020, Dr Chelsea Marshall is working with the Independent Food Aid Network (IFAN) on a project to support a 'cash first' approach at a local level. The project involves co-developing practical tools aimed at improving access to cash-based options for those experiencing food insecurity as well as working collaboratively with food aid providers to understand, record and share learning about how these ‘cash first’ options support a reduction in the need for food aid.
