We think that hunger has no place in 21st century Britain, and are working with partners as diverse as food banks and local community food organisations, politicians and companies, to make sure it becomes a thing of the past.

We make change at three levels:

1. Establishing and supporting local pilots

We work in practical ways to combat hunger in towns, cities and counties around the UK, through our local Feeding Britain pilots. These are coalitions of local organisations- charities, community groups, local authorities, social enterprises and others- who come together to take joint action to help eliminate hunger and its root causes in their communities.

Using Feeding Britain’s framework for action, the pilots implement projects across four areas:

2. Building a National network

Our local Feeding Britain pilots come together as a national network to share learning, exchange good practice, and identify and act on common issues. We meet every six months as a network, organise exchange visits, and members are regularly in touch to share ideas. Pilots share their data and information about emerging issues they are seeing on the ground, so that we can amplify these voices as a joint movement.

3. National policy reform

We know that however hard local projects work to support people in crisis, many of the root causes of hunger need to be addressed through national policy reform and legislation. We take the learning and evidence from our local pilots about what is causing hunger in their communities, and use this to call for national policy reforms that will alleviate, and ultimately eliminate, hunger for good. We work closely with the APPG on Hunger, and also raise issues with a wide range of other stakeholders to make sure those responsible are aware of the real situation for people at risk of hunger today. We hold these stakeholders accountable by tracking and making public the progress that has been made against our recommendations.

By working at these three levels, Feeding Britain is building a movement to alleviate and eliminate hunger. But we can't do it alone. Find out more about how you can support our work.
