Access to affordable and nutritious food

Redbridge CVS is seeking views of local residents and community groups on access to affordable, nutritious food in Redbridge.

A Food Poverty Action Plan Steering Group has been set up to investigate food poverty in Redbridge and to look at actions that can be undertaken by the Council and its partners to address it.

This research project is being conducted by Redbridge CVS (Council for Voluntary Services) on behalf of Redbridge Council. A Food Poverty Action Plan will be developed based on the findings of the research, and submitted to the Council.

This research project aims to explore:
  1. Experiences of residents of Redbridge in accessing affordable nutritious food in the borough.
  2. Factors that support access to affordable nutritious food and the different challenges that residents face in doing so.
  3. Actions that could be taken to ensure all Redbridge residents are able to access and enjoy affordable and nutritious food.
There are two online surveys as follows:

Survey for Redbridge community groups
If you are a community group please click here to complete the survey.

Survey for people who live in Redbridge
If you are a Redbridge resident, please click here to complete the survey.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The research results will be published in a report. Anyone who is interested in the project will have access to the findings and they will be made available online to download or browse free of charge.

If you would like to speak to one of our team members to share your views about this research, please get in touch with our Health Partnerships Manager, Swati Vyas via email at swati@redbridgecvs.net or phone 020 8514 9626.
