Hidden hunger - Food and poverty (action) in Plymouth

Date: Tuesday, 27 February 2018 19:30

Venue: The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre

Dr Clare Pettinger will be speaking to us this month about the foodscape in Plymouth, focussing on the horrors of food poverty in marginalized communities. Her main focus will be around some of the more positive 'grass roots’ steps that are being taken across the city, to end hunger and tackle food poverty. She will present some of her own narrative data, collected from homeless individuals, showing that food is an emotive topic, and suggesting creative approaches are needed to tackle these issues of social justice.

Dr Pettinger is an experienced lecturer with a track record in 'food choice' research and a developing interest in food poverty/justice and the 'future of food'.  She is a Registered Dietitian and Registered Nutritionist (Public Health) also an active member of the Food Plymouth partnership (Food Plymouth CIC) and sit on various local strategic steering groups.

This event is free and all are welcome, although we do ask for a voluntary contribution to help cover speakers' costs.
