York Food Justice Alliance


The York Food Justice Alliance is a cross-sector group working to better understand and tackle food poverty through research, campaigning and development work:
Our main aims:
1. Reduce the need for food aid provision by identifying and raising awareness about the systemic drivers of food poverty, e.g. ensuring those eligible for financial support are in receipt of it.
2. Give people the skills and confidence to challenge food poverty in their area.
3. Ensure existing community support is inclusive, supportive, social and well-coordinated across the city.
4. Encourage community food organisations to develop advocacy, advice & support services.
5. Ensure children in York are fed during term time and in school holidays.
6. Involve ‘experts by experience’ in YFPA’s work.
YFPA is part of Good Food York, York Human Rights City Network & One Planet York. Our members include:
Bellfarm Community Centre
Chill in the Community CIC
