Food insecurity - worrying about accessing enough food, making compromises to quality or quantity or just going without - is becoming much more of an issue for our communities.
People experiencing food insecurity face not only a lack of sufficient food, but also negative impacts on their health and the stress of being able to feed their family from one day to the next. This can also come with feelings of shame and helplessness, social stigma and isolation. Community food initiatives have a really important role to play here, as they can provide emotional and practical support as well as places for people to access food.
