2006-2016 A Legacy to Address Food Poverty

Healthy Food for All closed its doors in March 2016 due to a lack of sustainable funding. As part of its final action we produced a legacy document to mark Healthy Food for All’s ten years of operation and the handing over of its work to other groups. As part of its legacy this website will continue to be made available as a resource. We also made a Call to Action, asking advocates to commit to five key actions over the next five years.
