Cornwall Food Access Alliance

Our Vision: ‘Of Cornwall as a place where no one goes hungry’.

Our Objectives:

IDENTIFY: Understand the need (for food & related support).
COMMUNICATE: Coordinate delivery of food support activities & communications about it.
SHARE: Resolve issues by sharing best practice, skills & knowledge to identify & fill gaps.
CHALLENGE: Advocate for change in the system to prevent food insecurity, food waste & assure people’s right to food.
PLAN: Agree priorities for the future & inform food systems strategies.
