Food Poverty Conference 2018

Research on the issue of food insecurity has grown significantly in recent years. Drs Rachel Loopstra and Hannah Lambie-Mumford will be hosting the first-ever national research conference on household food insecurity.  This conference will feature presentations from researchers across the UK. Topics include food insecurity experiences among children, nutritional and health consequences of food insecurity, the costs of a healthy food basket, strategies to reduce food insecurity and risk factors.

The aim of this conference is to highlight the emerging body of research on food and poverty in the UK. Specifically, the objectives of the conference are:

  • To provide a forum for the presentation of recent multidisciplinary research on food and poverty that is being conducted across the UK.
  • To facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers and third sector organisations, policymakers and other research users.
  • To provide a forum for discussion on key research priorities to inform policy and practice going forward.
