  • An end to food banks and emergency food provision by the 3rd sector. We believe that access to good food is a human right and that it is the job of the government to ensure it is accessible to all 
  • Affordable and accessible cooking skills to be part of the curriculum in primary and secondary schools
  • An end to profiteering and short-term convenience within the food system taking precedence over environmental sustainability and public health 
  • An end to ‘food deserts’ and ‘food swamps’ 
  • A greener, cleaner and sustainable food system without animal, human or environmental exploitation and suffering
  • Strong, empowered and equal communities with the skills, knowledge and resilience to grow, source and cook their own nourishing, culturally and dietarily appropriate food in response to their changing needs.

We are painfully aware that we are a long way from the above becoming a reality, and that many things stand in the way of achieving these aims. However we keep these aims firmly in mind throughout all of our work, whilst doing what we can to minimise the suffering and poor health outcomes caused by food insecurity and diet-related inequality. 

Traditionally, our focus as an organisation has been on increasing cooking-from-scratch skills and knowledge of good food in hard-to-reach communities. However, after more than a decade of punitive and debilitating austerity politics topped by a global pandemic, we have found ourselves being asked more and more to provide nutritious meals to alleviate hunger and food security all over Greater Manchester. ‘Cracking the Crisis’ saw us distribute more than 95,000 community meals in the first year of the pandemic and we partnered with Life Leisure in Stockport to provide more than 2700 packed lunches for children at-risk of food insecurity in Stockport this summer using HAF funding. We have been shocked time and time again about the levels of hunger and poverty local people are encountering, the causes of which are entirely avoidable.
