Friday 3rd November 2017, 7:00pm–10:00pm The Hospital Club, 24 Endell St, London WC2H 9HQ

Take Back The Power: The Future of Food In Britain

We will be discussing practices that are designed to provide everyone, everywhere, with food of the highest standard without wrecking the rest of the world. We will be looking at how to circumvent food waste and make informed decisions that may lessen our impact on the world and the suffering of others.

Governments are not doing what needs doing and with Brexit threatening to further lower standards of food production, nutrition and environmental policy, now is the time to make our voices heard and stop supporting practices we know to be wrong. Changing legislation and shifting power may offer an opportunity to take back the power, create participatory and democratic governance of our food system, challenge corporate power, replace unhealthy farming practices with sustainable agro-ecological methods of production and ensure healthy and natural food for all.
