 Food Aid - Why & How We Should Give It

 

Food poverty and foodbank use has increased rapidly in the UK during the last decade. Food insecurity is also being experienced by more and more people in times of austerity, insecure employment, low incomes, and rising living costs. Still many people suffering extreme food poverty resist foodbank use due to the stigma of receiving this sort of help and common discourses about ‘foodbank tourists’ and ‘scroungers’. In this talk, Dr Mhairi Bowe will discuss her research looking the reasons for foodbank use in Nottinghamshire, the impact of stigma on the successful delivery of food aid, and the vital support resources being delivered by community-based foodbanks.

Dr Mhairi Bowe is a Chartered Psychologist and Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Nottingham Trent University. Her research focuses on the impact of group-based identities and social relationships on psychological well-being and lived experiences. Mhairi’s work focuses on a variety of topics including the impact of social prescription, community engagement, and ecotherapy on mental and physical health.
