Beyond Charitable Food Aid: Advice Sheet

Advice sheet for funders and civil society groups who want to build longer-term food security in their communities.

25th October 2023

In 2023, FFCC, Local Trust and International Futures Forum led a project to examine how funders and community groups can work together to address immediate food needs, while at the same time shifting towards sustainable and healthy community-based food systems in the longer term.

The project resulted in a report: Beyond charitable food aid: How can funders and communities work together to create thriving local food systems?

This advice sheet offers actions, ideas and questions to help funders and civil society groups think about how to move beyond delivering food aid to build longer-term community food security and resilient local food systems.
