At Nourish we work in partnership with people with lived experience of food injustice, other NGOs, and decision-makers to develop cross-cutting solutions.

  • Our most established partnership is as a founding member and co-chair of the Scottish Food Coalition. Together with trade unions, other social and environmental justice organisations, and producers we’re working in partnership to advocate for a just transition to a fair, healthy and sustainable food system.
  • We have been working with the Poverty Truth Commission for many years and are currently focusing on defining what dignity means in practice through the co-production of a Dignity Framework with community food providers.
  • We are an observer member of Sustain: The Alliance for Better Food and Farming. Sustain advocate food and agriculture policies and practices that enhance the health and welfare of people and animals, improve the working and living environment, promote equity and enrich society and culture. Nourish works with Sustain on a number of UK-wide topics, including on the future of agricultural support post-Brexit, and on framework food governance.
  • In 2016 we joined Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and have been working in partnership with the existing members to make tackling food and farming emissions a high priority in the next Climate Change Plan and forthcoming Climate Change Bill.
  • We are members of both the UK Food Poverty Alliance, and the End Hunger UK Campaign, through which we collaborate with NGOs across the UK on a number of household food insecurity related issues.
  • In 2017 we began work with Oxfam, Child Poverty Action Group in Scotland, the Poverty Alliance on the A Menu for Change project, supporting practice development in a number of local authority areas to prevent food insecurity and embed dignity at the heart of community food provision.
