Our Vision

The Luton Food Poverty Alliance believe that the local community should have access to resources that help them in times of food poverty, so that they can adequately feed themselves and their families with nutritious food.

Our vision is that all Luton residents should:

1. Feel confident to buy and cook low cost fresh food, through education and awareness

2. Be aware of food growing spaces that they can use for free, and how to share fresh produce with others

3. Be aware of local food banks and know how to access them in times of need

4. Feel supported within their community to help themselves find ways out of food poverty

5. Be aware of the Healthy Start scheme and feel able to access the vouchers if eligible

6. Be aware of the Luton 2020-2040 vision and how thisaims to address inequality across the town

 

 

By increasing the consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables across Luton (and through a reduction in the consumption of sugar and trans-fats) it is hoped that the number of deaths from coronary heart disease and cancer can be reduced.  Alongside this it is hoped that nutrition and well-being will be improved.  Currently the consumption of fruit and vegetables in Luton is half the recommendation (only 2.4 portions per day).

The Luton Food Poverty Alliance Action Plan

The Luton Food Poverty Alliance (LFPA) are a group of individuals and organisations working together to highlight and reduce the incidence of food poverty in Luton.  The LFPA Action Plan details the vision, purpose and actions of the alliance.
