Food GRP

We're changing the world. Are you ready?

We believe people deserve to eat regularly, sustainably, fairly and well. They should be served by a food system that can continually meet the challenges we face.

Staging a FEAST! for
Coventry City of Culture 2021

The Food GRP is excited to be taking part in the Coventry City of Culture, as part of the University of Warwick’s Resonate Festival. Our exploration of celebrations of all kind is ongoing. Due to the current circumstances we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our 'Food Feast Fair' at Berkswell on 10/11 December and our Greek/Roman Feasting event at the Herbert Gallery on 11th December. They will be held in the spring - watch out for dates!

However we are still bringing you Food GRP weekly videos and blogs, see the full programmes of the Warwick Resonate Festival and Coventry City of Culture. Partnering together to make 2021 a year to remember!

Impacts of COVID-19 on the Food System

'The food system is a complex web of activities including the production, processing, transport and consumption of food. However, the Covid-19 pandemic is illustrating its flaws and fragility'.

'Food on the Move', for example, an online event on 7 July 2021 brought together academics, industry representatives, and members of the public to discuss the ways in which fast-moving food chains have been affected by the pandemic.
