According to statista, the use of food banks has increased year-on-year from 26,000 in 2008/09 to 1.6 million in 2018/19. In this webinar, the Food and Health Forum will provide a perspective on the current status of food security and its possible impact on the nutritional status of the population.

You'll be able to distil the current fragile situation since the UK’s heavy reliance on the EU, both for fresh food imports and farm labour, means that a ‘no deal’ Brexit could be disastrous. A faculty of experts will cover a range of topics, including sustainable diets, the meaning of modern food security, and the implications of Brexit for the food system.

Participants will have their questions answered, including:

  • Is there an imminent crisis or is this just scaremongering?
  • What will the food landscape look like as we emerge from COVID-19 and as the impact of the UK leaving the EU becomes clearer?
  • How will vulnerable sectors of our society be impacted?
  • What is the longer term prognosis for the availability and affordability of a nutritionally sound diet in the UK?
  • What is a good food system? How is ours measured and will the proposed new system measuring up?

Undoubtedly, COVID-19 and the UK's departure from the EU present a potent and complex cocktail of issues, which means we can no longer afford to be complacent regarding our food supply.
