    The Role of Current and Future Food Systems in Alleviating Food Poverty in Urban Areas – An Inclusive Food System Model


    The aim of the study is to review the current food system in the UK and measure its impact on food poverty in cities around the country. The project is also to provide a strategic and sustainable plan that can help government and other relevant stakeholders to alleviate food poverty on national, regional and individual levels.


    The project is funded by the Royal Agricultual University and will help understand the extent of food poverty in the UK.
