Part of our continuing series offering space for sincere conversation and deep reflection about how we live together...

Despite being in the nation’s economic powerbase, why do some of us in London experience food poverty? We explored the economic and social reasons that lead to food poverty and inequality. We heard from charity, voluntary and church groups involved in these issues. We examined some of the community responses: from food banks to breakfast clubs (and beyond).

Speakers included: Fr Michael Dunne, Bow Food Bank; Professor Jon May, Queen Mary University of London, Fr John Moffatt SJ, Hurtado Jesuit Community, chaired by Phoebe Jackson, Caritas Westminster.

This is part of a series of conversations, we will be looking at topical economic, political and cultural issues in the light of principles and values from Catholic social teaching that can be shared by people of faith or no faith.

A full Digest with a summary of the conversation and resources to think further about food poverty in our local communities in the light of Catholic Social Teaching is available to download here HJCDigestFoodPoverty.
