A Tale of Two Cities: Food Wealth and Poverty in Bristol – A Debate, Conversation and Dinner at Colston Hall

Food poverty is the inability to afford or to have access to food to make up a healthy diet. It affects some 23% of Bristol’s children. The causes are complex – some obvious, some paradoxical – and the answers, while completely within our capacity as a city, are equally challenging. This session will explore the barriers, the politics, the people and some models for transformational change. However, child food poverty does not mean we should not celebrate Bristol’s great food culture.

A Tale of Two Cities is comprised of two separately ticketed events; join us first for a debate led by a panel of experts from the areas of public health policy, research and practice, followed by a dinner prepared and delivered by a team of chefs from Bristol and beyond along with young chefs from Square Food’s How to Be A Chef programme and in partnership with The No Child Goes Hungry project and FareShare South West.

Dinner Menu

Canapes – Anchovies, caponata, chicken livers, goats cheese
Starter – broad beans, courgettes, fennel, salad leaves, mint, ricotta, focaccia
