Food poverty

At a recent conference on community wealth and well-being, Cranhill Development Trust offered  a brief insight into the lived experience of poverty in their community. In their recently opened community shop, items like toilet rolls that normally come in multi-packs are split up and sold as single items. They even weigh out vegetables into one meal packs  along with individually measured sachets of herbs and spices. The campaign to make the universal human right of access to food into a reality in Scotland by enshrining it in Scots law is gathering pace.

Produced by Media Co-op, the animation has been developed with input and advice from people who face barriers in accessing their right to food, people involved in producing food, and people involved in community food projects around Scotland.
