Cafe Sci: NG7 Food Bank - a commmunity based response to welfare cuts

David Jones and ...

NG7 Food Bank

In quite a short space of time 12 food banks have been set up in Nottingham. Most of these are affiliated to the Trussle Trust. The way we work is different. The NG7 Food Bank is a community based organisation. Our aim is to work in a way that encourages people to support each other and to use resources in a way that is more collective. We rely on donations from individuals and groups in the area and we seek to promote responsibility and choice in the way we work. Through the food bank we aim to challenge central and local government in their vindictive campaigns against the most vulnerable.

MEETING FORMAT: Our speaker talks, uninterrupted for 20 minutes, to introduce his topic. During a break to get drinks, the Hat goes round. Then there is an hour’s chaired question and answer session. Cafe Sci is funded by the Hat (no sponsors). We suggest a contribution £5 (waged) or £2 - £3 (unwaged). Full details here
