More than Food
Val Potter, County Ecumenical Officer in Dorset, reflects on Food Banks and other welfare issues in a personal paper intended for wider discussion.
Emerging out of a day conference, Val says, 'How can we be more prophetic to promote better health and well-being? Why do individuals, families and communities go hungry in the South West? Why do we waste so much food in the region where about 30% is discarded every day? Where are the signs of hope for the longer term in the face of food poverty now? Should we plan to put ourselves (food banks) out of business?!
Can we move from being providers of first aid to agents of change?’
