Our work in the London Borough of Lambeth is focused on a project which seeks to link GP practices with food aid projects to improve the health and wellness of patients and their families.

The project will train staff at GP surgeries to refer patients to available food projects operating in their community, will develop resources and signposting to direct people to food aid services, and will test out a food on prescription voucher system. Experts in the field and community food aid organisations will work with 3 GP Surgeries (Lambeth Walk Practice, Grantham Practice and Crown Dale Medical Centre) to pilot the project. 

A key outcome of this project is to create a workable, cost effective and empowering model that could be replicated elsewhere in the health service.
