Affordable Food

Addressing food poverty and encouraging healthy eating in the community.

The idea

"I live in Grangetown and, as a single mother, I used a food co-op when my son was small in order to get fruit and vegetables at affordable prices.

I feel passionately that a little education can make a huge difference in eating habits, and involving children is great for bonding and for their relationship with food from an early age.

With food prices rising and incomes falling in real terms, I love to see a project that helps families to improve their diets."

How can Cardiff University help?

"I would like support to develop how the idea would work in practice, and models for projects that could make a sustainable difference."
