Wednesday April 18th 3.30-5pm Committee Room 9, House of Commons, SW1A 0AA

Food banks have become an increasingly prevalent feature in our communities over the last few years with the numbers of food bank referrals reaching record levels.

How are local councils and organisations responding to the changing nature of emergency provision and deprivation?

With demand for food banks expected to rise further as Universal Credit is fully rolled out, what practical steps are available to tackle poverty and hunger and how can councils take a leading role?

There are two local speakers at this event.

Chair: Emma Lewell-Buck MP

Speakers: 

Roxanne Mashari Councillor, London Borough of Brent
Sabine Goodwin- Independent Food Aid Network
Robert Tinker - Joseph Rowntree Foundation
Deidre Woods - Granville Community Kitchen
