Food Poverty Action Plans

To help all Londoners access healthy, affordable food the GLA is inviting London boroughs to apply for funding to develop Food Poverty Action Plans:

  • Food Poverty Action Plans are a great way for boroughs to work with local partners to create solutions to food poverty.
  • The plans directly address the Mayor’s ambition to tackle food poverty in the capital and reduce Londoners’ reliance on food banks. 
  • The programme is being delivered in partnership with Sustain’s London Food Poverty Campaign
  • We are already supporting 5 boroughs to develop Food Poverty Action Plans - Enfield, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Croydon and Merton.  

After a competitive application process, 5 boroughs will each receive a grant of up to £5,000 as well as support from Sustain to produce plans between January and August 2018.

Local authorities have until midday Friday 15th December 2017 to submit their applications for funding.
