2011 Food Issues Census
Article Type: Feature From: Management of Environmental Quality: An International Journal, Volume 22, Issue 6
Conducted by the Food Ethics Council on behalf of the A-Team Foundation, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, JMG Foundation, Mark Leonard Trust, Organix Foundation and Tubney Charitable Trust, the 2011 Food Issues Census provides an overview of the activities of civil society groups working on food or farming in the UK, based on a survey of over 300 organisations.
It seeks to provide fresh insights on the size, shape and strategies of the sector. It shows that there is a rich diversity of approaches and activities, but also that food and farming is undervalued by civil society, and that the sector is particularly at risk from public spending cuts. The report sets out the challenges posed by these facts for NGOs, government and grant makers.
