Food Matters Foundation is a charity that works to see healthy, sustainable, fair food become a reality for everybody, every day. We work to deliver change in policy and practice through innovative, participatory, citizen-led, whole systems approaches. Food Matters has developed a unique voice in the food sector and a highly successful way of working that can help individuals, communities, groups, businesses and other organisations develop, deliver and evaluate ground-breaking, food policy work and locally relevant initiatives.
A major focus of Food Matters’ current work programme is on food system reform across the penal sector including services that encompass ‘at risk’ of offending, prisoners and probation to change food policy and the food environment to better support prisoners and ex-offenders to access healthier food choices to improve health and mental well-being and reduce reoffending.
We are doing this through a project called Food Matters Inside and Out.
