This community partnership brought together 65 stakeholders from community groups with policymakers and academics at a series of roundtable meetings to discuss poverty and food insecurity in Oxfordshire. They started a multidisciplinary dialogue about tackling income and food inequalities, and ensuring that every child in Oxfordshire has access to nutritious, affordable food every day. The meetings catalysed actions at local and national level, with the team feeding into the key local projects and policies in Oxfordshire, and engaging in national policy and advocacy dialogues as a result of this work.
