Policy & Advocacy
We will share the learning and evidence from our Practice Development, Network for Change, and research work streams with key actors to inform their policy and practice on preventing, and responding to, food insecurity. A Menu for Change will also utilise the project learning and evidence to advocate at local, Scottish and UK levels for action to prevent food insecurity and for measures to enhance the response when it does happen.
A Menu for Change will work intensively in three areas to support public and third sector actors to review and improve existing policy and practice to put cash, rights and dignity at the heart of the response.
We will engage with actors across Scotland to stimulate and harness a network for change. This work will involve highlighting good practice, sharing learning and knowledge, and raising local voices.
A Menu for Change will undertake in-depth qualitative research with individuals experiencing food insecurity. The project will also create opportunities for emergency food aid providers to contribute data to improve knowledge and understanding.
