The CFHS annual networking conference took place at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday 7 November. On the right track? brought together everyone who has a role or interest in community food and health activity that addresses health inequalities in Scotland.
The conference programme featured three separate parts: a discussion kicked off by Dr. Deirdre O’Connor College Dublin speaking about ‘rights based approaches to addressing food poverty’, a workshop programme and a networking session.
This report is a note of key themes and points gathered from participants in response to discussions on:
- what it is like in communities where there are signs that people are experiencing food poverty;
- sharing existing and potential approaches to food and health policy and practice that address difficulties in accessing food, and food poverty within low-income communities in Scotland.
