Urban Food Actions Platform

Find out how to ensure easy access to food for everyone. For instance, building forms of social protection systems - food banks, community food kitchens, social restaurants, emergency food pantries, nutrition-sensitive cash-transfer programs etc. - or supporting grassroots activities dedicated to provide vulnerable populations with access to healthy and sustainable food.
