Cheshire East Food Alliance

The Cheshire East Food Alliance will play a key role in developing a ‘Right to Food’ strategy – to address food insecurity across Cheshire East.  

For the Alliance to be successful we need a cross representation of organisations including community groups, charities, faith organisations, local government, the NHS, housing trusts, retailers, other food providers, and a wide range of other groups / people, to come together, to work to address this significant issue.

The project is being led by CVS Cheshire East with funding and support from Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Community Foundation.

The Food Alliance is a member of the Feeding Britain network of regional and local partnerships across the UK. 

Launch event - 17 October 2023 

We held our launch event at Congelton Town Hall on Tuesday 17 October 2023. Over 50 people we're in attendance representing a wide range of organisations including both Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Community Foundation - the project funders, a wide range of charity, community and faith food delivery organisations, town councils, housing trusts, the Co-op and FareShare


Attendees heard from Andrew Forsey, National Director at Feeding Britain, Lucie Ferneyhough, Communities Team at Cheshire East Council, and Graham Brown, Sector Development Officer for Food Coordination at CVS Cheshire East.
