OPIN-2019-0127 Co-operative Party's Food Justice Campaign (e) Tabled on 08/05/2019

This Assembly:

1. Welcomes the Co-operative Party's Food Justice Campaign to tackle hunger and ensure everyone can make healthy food choices.

2. Believes the causes of rising hunger lie in austerity, tax and welfare changes, an economy that no longer provides a fair day’s pay for a fair days work for too many, and a broken housing market.

3. Seeks a commitment to food justice in the WBFG Act’s new 'national milestones' in Wales.

4. Encourages councils to designate a 'lead member' with responsibility for food, setting up a food action plan, promoting local food partnerships, and measuring the scale of the problem locally.
