Findings from research conducted by the University of West England show that SFP members are well equipped to proactively and effectively coordinate government funding.
Areas of Wales with a preexisting Sustainable Food Places (SFP) food partnership, when compared to areas without, have been able to better co-ordinate the £2.5 million Welsh government food poverty fund. As a result of their progressed partnership development, SFP members have been able to immediately put that money to work addressing the root causes of food poverty. This research shows that SFP members are well equipped to quickly, proactively and effectively coordinate government funding.
