Tackling food insecurity in Lanarkshire: what can we learn from the Food Poverty Renewal Gateway
February 23, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
First networking event from A Menu for Change.
North Lanarkshire Council has responded to the increasing numbers of people turning to food banks by launching the Food Poverty Referral Gateway to ensure people get their full entitlement to crisis grants from the Scottish Welfare Fund before they turn to food banks for help.
This workshop will look at the challenges and successes of the Referral Gateway and its potential to be replicated in other areas.
