Food for Health not Wealth

A conference for those who want to broaden their understanding of the food agenda and how we can build sustainable & inclusive food networks.

Thursday 27th January 2022
10am – 12noon
Online, via Zoom

The food crisis didn’t start with COVID-19, it started long before:

  • when we stopped shopping locally
  • when we didn’t think about where our food came from
  • when we started eating out as much as eating in
  • when we started buying from chain restaurants and stopped cooking from scratch
  • when food was lost from the curriculum as ‘domestic science’ and came back under the ‘technology’ umbrella
  • when foodbanks replaced affordable food
  • when we put profit before health
  • when we started buying products not ingredients
  • when we started eating carbage and mistook it for food
  • when we allowed food to go to waste when people were going hungry.

Food for Health not Wealth will explore why we must act NOW, or risk a landslide of poor health and health-related issues.

Our talks and speakers will be:

  • Food for Britain – Andrew Forsey, Director of Feeding Britain
  • Food Waste – Gareth Batty, CEO of FareShare Yorkshire
  • Food Savings – Tess Wilkins, Coordinator of FoodSavers
  • Food Strategy – Kristen Bash, Public Health Consultant (office of Health Improvement and Disparities)
  • Food and Cooking Skills – Rosanna Bluett, Jamie’s Ministry of Food
  • Food for Health – Shelley Booth, Feel Look Be
