The Right2Food podcast is brought to you by the team of Young Food Ambassadors working with The Food Foundation to campaign for better access to good food for every child across the UK.

On the podcast, our Ambassadors find out how Covid-19 has revealed the gaps in our food system, from holiday hunger to the stigma about food insecurity. We’ll hear from inspirational people and projects working on the front line who can help us find real solutions to the problems we want fixed.
