Moray Food Plus: Partnering with the community of Moray to ensure everyone has the right to food

Moray Community Food Hub takes quality supermarket waste and other surplus foods and redistributes to community groups and other food related projects. If you deliver cooking classes, run a lunch club, support those experiencing food inequality, or are working to make food more accessible please contact us to see if you could benefit.
Moray Community Food Hub is working with those experiencing food insecurity to offer dignity and choice in crisis food provision by developing community larders, for example, within homeless units. If you think a community larder would help your organisation or clients please let us know and we will talk you through the ins and outs of setting up a larder.

In order to try and address the rising issue of food poverty in Moray the Fairer Moray Forum secured funding from Food Power to develop a food poverty action plan. The Forum felt that it was important to consult with people who were either currently experiencing food insecurity, or who had experienced food insecurity in the past and in-depth consultation was carried out.
The food poverty action plan has now been published and it is hoped the actions will be adopted by organisations and professionals across Moray.

A Poverty Strategy was developed by the Fairer Moray Forum on behalf of the Moray Community Planning Partnership and an accompanying action plan was written incorporating the Child Poverty Report. Information has been collated from partners across the community for the development of both documents. Collating this information and using three poverty drivers, eight strategic outcomes with twenty-six discrete actions have been developed. This strategy and action plan has now been approved by the Moray Community Planning Partnership and submitted to the Scottish Government; reporting will be carried out on a yearly basis and progress monitored.
