The UK is witnessing a crisis of food poverty born out of the political choices and systemic failings created over the past four decades. In Brent alone, a third of households live below the poverty line, leading to a lack of access to fresh, healthy, affordable and culturally-appropriate food. Local activists are calling on Council Leader Muhammed Butt to declare Brent a Right to Food Borough, inspired by a national campaign by the MP for Liverpool and West Derby Ian Byrne. We want to work with community kitchens and gardens, mutual aid groups, trade unions, and anyone else interested in fixing our broken food system.
Join us to discuss the best ways of organising for food justice in our Borough at the launch of the Brent Right to Food campaign on Saturday 10 July 2021, 12:00-14:00 by registering here.
