Which communities are hardest hit by the rising cost of food and how can we help?

Professor Michelle Morris joined colleagues from the Global Food and Environment Institute on the latest How To Fix… podcast to discuss how rising food prices are affecting different communities.

Michelle discussed the role that access plays in food poverty and how policy makers can use the CDRC’s Priority Places for Food Index (developed in collaboration with Which?) to identify neighbourhoods that are most vulnerable to increases in the cost of living and which have a lack of accessibility to cheap, healthy, and sustainable sources of food.

Dr Effie Papargyropoulou and Prof Sara Gonzalez discussed how traditional markets and community-led food initiatives can help remove some of the barriers to food access and are supporting some of those communities struggling with food insecurity.
