The Broken Plate 2021 – Food Foundation event

July 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

""Wednesday 7 July, 2pm

Register here to be sent a Zoom link for the event.

Researchers from CEDAR at the MRC Epidemiology Unit have, for the third year in a row, contributed to the Food Foundation’s annual Broken Plate report.

Each year the report tracks progress against 10 metrics that illustrate the health of our food system.  These statistics are widely quoted, and make the case for bold action.

This year’s report demonstrates that the food environment is skewed towards less healthy options, and that healthier foods are much less accessible and affordable for those on lower incomes.  It powerfully shows why we must change the food environment so that it delivers healthy and sustainable diets for everyone.

Join this webinar to find out more about the findings and their implications for future policy.

The event will be chaired by Laura Sandys MBE. The speakers are:

Advertising – Barbara Crowther, Sustain

Affordability of a healthy diet – Kathleen Kerridge, Chair of The Food Foundation’s Lived Experience Panel

The cost of food – Dr Jean Adams, CEDAR, MRC Epidemiology Unit

Wages – Nye Cominetti, Resolution Foundation
