Subject: [GODAN WG: Food Poverty] Tackling the Causes of Food Insecurity in Developed Economies: The Food Ladder Concept
To: Working Group on Food Poverty <food.poverty-discuss at godan.info<mailto:food.poverty-discuss at godan.info>>

Dear all,

The recording of the Webinar on tackling food insecurity in developed economies using the Food Ladders method is available to view on GODAN's Web site here: https://www.godan.info/news/tackling-causes-food-insecurity-developed-economies-food-ladder-concept

The Food Ladders concept is an approach, developed by Dr. Megan Blake and researchers at Sheffield University, that seeks to build more food secure futures. It is based on many years of research involving a critical collaborative methodology. Food Ladders are community-scale interventions aimed at building local-level resilience in the face of food insecurity.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can also find Megan on Twitter: @GeoFoodieOrg

All the best,



More background and information

Probably the best place to get more background and information on the Food Ladders work is Megan's Blog, see: https://geofoodie.org/category/food-ladders/

Megan has also given me a .pdf file to pass on to you (attached).

The Sheffield University team produced a fantastic short film that gives some background to the work and its importance. It is subtitled in multiple languages and available here:  https://timeforgeography.co.uk/videos_list/resource-management/food-surplus-security/

Megan talks about a fruit and vegetables voucher scheme she is involved in, more details here:  https://freshstreet.uk/

For those that want to read more on the subject, all Megan's papers and documented research are available via her research gate site:  https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Megan-Blake/research
