Let’s tackle food poverty together!

25 September 2014

Tackling Poverty logo.png13-19th October Greater Manchester - a week of action

Why is the Trust involved?

Food poverty is not acceptable in modern society and that is why we have joined a group of businesses, organisations and charities who havecome together to tackle the growing problem of
food poverty in Greater Manchester.

Tackling Food Poverty Together is a week of action to raise awareness of the issues and focus on solutions.

We know that food banks and voluntary organisations are an essential support, but we are also keen to drive forward longer term solutions. 

How is the Trust involved?

We have joined the week of action to raise awareness across Greater Manchester. We will join with other organisations to tackle the problem together and aim for a long and lasting change.

We are running different events during the week of action including:

Giving Food

Giving support and raising funds for food banks,breakfast clubs and other voluntary groups. 

Growing Food

Supporting customers interested in growing their own food for the benefit of the community.

Cooking Food

Linking with organisations who can provide advice on how to eat cheaply and healthily and reduce food waste. 

Positive Starts with Food

We are talking to new tenants who are on low incomes about what support they need when they move into a new home.

 For more information about how Trafford Housing Trust are getting involved see our calender of events here.
