Public Health Network Cymru Webinar: Food Security in Wales

Share this article

The whole population is affected by food security to some degree but vulnerable population groups will be particularly negatively affected, especially in the coming months. Food security has been defined as being “When all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life” (FAO, 1996).

A report published by Public Health Wales highlights how the combined influences of Brexit, Coronavirus and climate change will potentially impact all of us through the food that we are able to buy.  This webinar will provide a background to the current Welsh and UK legislative and policy context in relation to food security and the impact that food security has on the health and wellbeing of the population. The webinar will also share how local food partnerships are mobilising community food leaders and advocating for better access to affordable, healthy and sustainable food.Speakers will include:

  • Zena Lopez, Food Standards Agency
  • Dr Angelina Sanderson Bellamy, University of the West of England
  • Chris Nottingham, Sustainable Food Places Co-ordinator at Blaenau Gwent Food Partnership
