Paid Fixed term / contract
Hackney Food Poverty Alliance (HFPA) was initiated by and is a sub-group of the Hackney Food Partnership. It was formed at an initial meeting in October 2018 with the aim to support and co-ordinate the collective work of voluntary, community, private and statutory organisations and local people working to tackle food poverty in Hackney.
In 2019 the HFPA has a specific role in overseeing the development of a Food Poverty Action Plan and the piloting of some ‘test and learn’ early interventions, with financial support from Food Power and Hackney Council.
The Action Plan will build on and compliment Hackney Council’s emerging Poverty Reduction Strategy that uses a co-production and whole system approach to understand and address the barriers, needs and priorities of different vulnerable communities.
We are now seeking expressions of interest from those interested in undertaking a temporary assignment to work with local organisations and local people to help develop a Food Poverty Action Plan for Hackney. The temporary worker will be hosted by the Policy and Partnerships Team at Hackney Council but accountable to the Hackney Food Poverty Alliance and Hackney Food Partnership.

The Food Poverty Alliance Development Worker will work closely with members of the HFPA who will be able to provide support in identifying community providers, local people with the lived experience of food poverty and locally available information relevant to developing the Food Poverty Action Plan. The Development Worker will work closely with the Chair of the HFPA to inform the agendas for the quarterly HFPA meetings.
The Development Worker will be hosted by Hackney Council and offered desk space and IT. They will be expected to travel round the Borough, and occasionally outside the Borough.
