Food Poverty and Museums: How Local Partnerships Can Drive Positive Change

25 November 2021 @ 18:30 - 19:30


Do you want to explore how you can develop partnerships to support your local community and drive real actionable change?

Throughout the pandemic, many museums have worked within their local communities to support those in need. During this time, nearly six million adults and 1.7 million children were struggling to get enough food, and there was a 126% increase in emergency food parcels (Environment, Food and Rural Affairs committee & Independent Food Aid Network UK).

Join us on Thursday 25 November at 6.30pm, when we will be hearing from the Rochdale Pioneers Museum about how it collaborated with local partners to develop a community food share scheme called The Pioneer Pantry. We will learn how the museum has used a sustainable model to enable people to access food affordably.

This event has been programmed by the Kids in Museums Youth Panel.

The session will be delivered virtually on Zoom and will be one hour in length.
