Right to Food Coalition Conference 2014 – New webpage

Posted on 24. Apr, 2014 by in Advocacy, Events, Other events

The Sydney Food Fairness Alliance is proud to be supporting the Right to Food Coalition’s inaugural food security conference called Putting Food on the Table: Food Security is Everyone’s Business. View the ‘Right to Food Coalition Conference 2014′ webpage on the above tab for regular updates!

The Right to Food Coalition comprises representatives from a range of Sydney based organisations working to raise the profile of food insecurity. We believe everyone has the right to access fresh, nutritious, affordable and culturally appropriate food. Putting Food on the Table is our first collaboration and aims to stimulate discussion and action on this important issue.

SAVE THE DATE! HELP US PUT HUNGER ON THE AGENDA!

About 5% – or over a million – Australians regularly can’t put adequate food on the table to feed their families. The numbers are even higher in some areas and amongst particular populations.  This hidden hunger may not be visible, but can have serious short and long term effects on health, education, employment and productivity.

We’ll be tackling this challenge at an important conference on food security, Putting Food on The Table.

Held from the 13 & 14 October 2014 at Casula Powerhouse, this two day event will bring together policy makers, academics, community development workers, and health promoters, exploring solutions at a range of levels:

Governance solutions: policy, planning and stakeholder collaboration

Population solutions: focused on target groups, such as refugees, Aboriginals and other marginalized communities

Community solutions: social enterprises, emergency food relief, action on food waste, community food access projects

Communications solutions: education, research, food literacy, outreach, labeling

More information about the Putting Food on the Table conference can be found at the Right to Food Coalition Conference website. Details about the website will be coming soon. Watch this space!

Please forward enquiries about the conference to info@righttofood.org.au

We hope to see you there!
