Food Insecurity and Food Poverty Rank Top in Poll of Food Issues

Food insecurity and food poverty have come top of a poll on contemporary food issues. Receiving 32% of votes, issues of food insecurity and food poverty emerged as the highest priority among voters.

In the lead up to our annual symposium on the theme of contemporary food issues, we’ve been running a poll to establish which food issues our members and wider audience consider to be the top priority. We’re announcing the results of the poll at the start of the symposium on the 16th of June 2016.

Other priority issues include nutrition and diet, food waste, and food sovereignty.
