Dear colleagues,

While food insecurity is recognised as an issue in developing economies, it undeniably also exists in wealthy countries.  In the UK, one in four adults experience some level of food insecurity at some point in their lives. According to Sheffield University research data, around 25% of UK adults have struggled during the pandemic to access food they can afford, leaving them susceptible to hunger and potential malnutrition.

Dr. Megan Blake (University of Sheffield) is coming to talk to us on 28th May 2021 about the Food Ladders Framework - a concept that she has created as a result of her considerable food security research. You can register for this free event and find out more at https://www.godan.info/events/tackling-causes-food-insecurity-developed-economies-food-ladder-concept

Please join the GODAN Food Poverty Working Group https://www.godan.info/working-group-food-poverty  and contribute your expertise for our collective mission to end hunger and poverty, both locally and globally.

I am grateful to everyone, everywhere working for Zero Hunger Aim.

Best wishes,


Dr Suchith Anand

Chief Scientist
