Time to Digest

Despite the Arctic conditions and transport systems in chaos, practitioners, policy makers and researchers from across Scotland and beyond met in Glasgow for this latest get together looking at measurement of food poverty and how this understanding can be best applied within policy and practice.

Organised by NHS Health Scotland jointly with A Menu for Change, a presentation on their research ambitions from Mary Anne Macleod was accompanied by a broader look at the subject area from Dr Martin Caraher, Prof of Food Policy at City University, London and a panel discussion on gaps and opportunities led by representatives from Pilton Community Health Project, Central and West Integration Network and the Scottish Government.

Presentations from Mary Anne and Martin, as well as notes on the rich discussion that followed, are available at the links below.
