Food Insecurity and Poverty Awareness Training
Food Poverty is the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food, and is a growing issue for many people in the UK.
Cheshire West Voluntary Action are running a training course on Tuesday 23rd January from 10:30 – 12:30 at the Hoole Community Centre (Westminster Road, Chester, CH2 3AP), to provide you with the tools to feel both confident and skilled at helping those who are experiencing it. It will help you to better support and signpost those people you encounter who are experiencing food poverty.
It will cover themes such as food insecurity, the cost of living, in-work poverty, the reality of what being in hardship is like, and more, and will be delivered in the format of videos as well as immersive and interactive exercises.
A lucky number of us can go food shopping, without too much financial anxiety, bemoan the rising prices, then push it to the back of our mind.
For people who can’t afford this luxury, there’s nothing comfortable about the weekly shop. In fact, it’s impossible to complete a shopping list when there are food sacrifices to be made due to increasing food costs.
