Ingrid Koehler and Jennifer Glover present our latest episode of LGIU Fortnightly, this week covering food security and access during the pandemic. We hear from Naomi Phillips of British Red Cross about their new report looking into the UK’s emergency response to food insecurity during the Covid-19 crisis, as well as Jane Corbett, Assistant Mayor of Liverpool City Council, who discusses how the authority has supported their most vulnerable residents over the past few months.
Plus, we cover the 2020 LGIU & CCLA Cllr Awards, our new local government book club and update listeners on our Sustainable Futures work, as well as the second pillar of our Post-Covid Councils project, Place & Community.
