Community Food Practices' Impact on Health Inequalities

Thursday, 7th May 2015, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Registration from 12:00 pm

Socioeconomic inequalities are well documented, and access to a healthy diet is considered central to addressing health inequality. 

The aim of this event is to bring key stakeholder groups such as the numerous community social enterprises working together to improve diet and health outcomes within disadvantaged communities.

The event will consider the barriers to a healthy diet, and social enterprise approaches to reducing these barriers. Expected outcomes will be: shared learning; a food, social enterprise and health research agenda; and the development of sector-informed research projects.

Registration will take place from 12pm.

Who should attend?

This event is intended for social enterprises interested in food as a means of tackling health inequalities. It may also interest policy makers in the field of social enterprise, community food policy or health inequality.

Benefits of attending

The purpose of this session is to share knowledge and best practice relevant to social enterprises and to engage participants in developing research projects to meet their needs.
