BwD Food Alliance is a collaboration between public, third and private sector organisations to address food poverty

Now led by Cllr Jackie Floyd and the Council's Public Health Directorate, Together Lancashire was instrumental in establishing this movement. We encourage all those organisations who respond to food poverty to work together to be more effective. The Eat Well Strategy has now been widely adopted by strategic health bodies. The Eat Well Action Plan is here.

The Experts by Experience programme has involved young people as Young Food Ambassadors across the borough; they have been involved in the national campaign to develop a Children's Food Charter - focusing on removing stigma, ensuring all children are fed during school holidays, and that all children have equal access to food.
