RedbridgeCVS is conducting research on access to affordable nutritious food amongst local residents

This research project aims to explore:
1.      Experiences of residents of Redbridge in accessing affordable nutritious food in the borough.
2.      Factors that support access to affordable nutritious food and the different challenges that residents face in doing so.
3.      Actions that could be taken to ensure all Redbridge residents are able to access and enjoy affordable and nutritious food.  
The research is being conducted by RedbridgeCVS (an independent local charity). We are conducting the research on behalf of Redbridge Council.  Based on the findings of this research, an Action Plan will be developed and submitted to the Council. A multi-agency Steering Group has been set up to investigate access to affordable nutritious food in Redbridge and look at actions that can be undertaken by the Council and its partners to address it. We thank you in advance for your valuable feedback and time.
