Tuesday 14th November 2017 | 5.30 – 7.00pm
Humanities Research Institute (HRI) Conference Centre, University of Sheffield (34 Gell Street, Sheffield, S3 7QY)
The rapid growth of food banks in the UK in recent years has become a major political and social issue. But at the same time, countries across Europe have also witnessed similar increases in emergency food provision.
On November 14th join leading researchers from Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and the UK to discuss this phenomenon and what it tells us about the adequacy of social protection and the future of welfare.
- Is there a hunger crisis in Europe?
- What does the rise of food charity across the continent signify?
- And how can we learn from each other?
The panel event will involve opening contributions from visiting researchers followed by audience questions and discussion.
Tea and coffee will be available from 5pm. The main event will take place between 5.30 and 7pm.
