Feeding Liverpool is the city of Liverpool’s food alliance, connecting and equipping people and organisations to work towards good food for all. They want to create a city where everyone can eat good food, no matter who they are and where they live.

Their aims are to:

  • Create arenas for practitioners to share, learn together and shape good practices in relation to good food for all
  • Draw on experiences from the ground to contribute to and influence policy debates and decisions locally and nationally
  • Raise awareness and develop greater public understanding of food policy and related issues.

One particular aspect of their role is to provide what Bishop Paul Bayes describes as a ‘line of sight to the street and back’. They want to ensure the voices of people who have first-hand experience of hunger and food insecurity, and of those who are working in our communities to tackle poverty, are heard by our local and national policy makers.

The Development Officer will grow and develop Feeding Liverpool’s existing network, connecting together organisations concerned with good food for all. Working with and often through existing community, faith and non-statutory organisations, they will develop and support mechanisms for communities to shape the future of their local food environments. Through facilitating processes of co-production, the Development Officer will support local people of all ages, and abilities including those with experience of food insecurity, to develop local influencing strategies and campaign for change, as together they seek to create a city where everyone can eat good food.

This role is funded for three years by The Trussell Trust as part of their Organising and Local Mobilisation Programme. Together they seek to build a movement to end the need for foodbanks.
