HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER TO END HUNGER AND FOOD INSECURITY IN BRISTOL?
FRIDAY 14TH JULY
Conference Hall, Bristol City Hall
College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TR
Bristol City Council is looking into a Bristol pilot of the national Feeding Britain programme, which is working towards a hunger-free United Kingdom – feeding-britain.org.
Please join us for this Open Space event if you are working in this sector in Bristol, from organisations helping people in crisis, to those involved in community food growing.
We would like to hear your ideas for and decide on activities we can take forward together for alleviating hunger, and reducing vulnerability to hunger, in our city in the months and years ahead. Event to be opened by the Mayor of Bristol,

Using a model similar to Street Support in Leeds and Manchester, there is a need for a new website containing all information pertaining to homelessness in Bristol. The site would be a central resource both for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, agencies working with them, and people that wanted to volunteer, or had ideas about how to help.
Ben Richardson from Caring in Bristol has put together a proposal for how this might be done ” Bristol online homelessness information ” and your views are invited.
Please post your views here and email BristolHF@gmail.com if you’re interested in getting involved; we hope to set up a meeting during May to plan the way forward.
Manchester & Leeds have an excellent resource for homeless people and services. Is this worth exploring for Bristol?
