About the event: The dramatic rise in food bank use in recent years has put charitable food assistance - and, more broadly, hunger - firmly on the political agenda in the UK. Join us for a panel discussion at the University of Warwick (OC0.02, main campus) to delve beyond the headlines and find out more about the problem of hunger in 21st century Britain. Learn about the diverse and innovative work that is being done by organisations to tackle the issue, and hear three food poverty experts discuss the social and political changes needed to reverse the trend towards food bank dependency in the UK. Read articles from all three panellists in Lacuna Magazine here. To submit a question for the panellists email with the subject “Beyond the Foodbank” and join the debate on our Twitter feed on the night.
