How Can We Maintain Food Dignity Whilst Repairing Broken a Food System

World Food Day annually falls on October 16, people around the world will be gathering to discuss food-related themes. On the eve of World Food Day,  Slow Food Birmingham along with Eat Make Play invite you eat with us and join the discussion


How Can We Maintain Food Dignity Whilst Repairing Broken a Food System

The panel includes:

Shane Holland – Chair Slow Food UK

Tim Botfield – Salop Drive Market Garden


Following the discussion we invite you eat with us, and help create a list of groups in Birmingham who are actively working to solve our food crisis. This will be for the benefit of all our community groups so we have a base to start collaborations (as together we are stronger) and also a place for people who want to volunteer can have a starting point. This list will be accessible on the Slow Food Birmingham website.


Why? With a growing Climate Crisis and Brexit predicted to raise the price of food, those in immediate danger should have food dignity and not be subject to food poverty.
