Abergavenny Just Food promotes debate about big issues to do with food. This year, they will be hosting a meeting at St Mary’s Church to address food, poverty and power.

Across the UK more than 2,000 food banks provide short term emergency aid very week and demand is soaring. In Wales alone 43,509 food parcels were distributed between April and November 2017. In areas where Universal Credit has been rolled out demand rose by 30% on the previous year. Why is it that growing numbers of people are unable to afford nutritious food as a matter of course? Join the discussion with Abergavenny Just Food during this year’s Abergavenny Food Festival.
