Short film and Q&A – sustainable and affordable food

October 17th 2020 - Presented by: Katie Palmer, Food Sense Wales Graeme Wilson, Farmer Susan Lloyd-Selby, Trussell Trust

This webinar includes a short film screening and Q&A looking at how we can develop a more sustainable and affordable food system.

No one should be going hungry in 21st century Wales, but with 700,000 people trapped in poverty, food insecurity is a daily challenge for thousands. It is not just consumers who struggle with the cost of food. The current food production system locks many of our farmers in poverty themselves, despite them producing a product that we all rely on.

The short film in this webinar, Nowt but a fleeting thing, explores the challenges faced by our farmers and to listen to our panel discussion to learn more about some solutions.
