Inadequate Emergency Food Response
We help cities create and implement Sustained Emergency Food Plans using tested principles, strategies, and asset mapping.
The planning table includes non-profit, philanthropic, and public and private-sector organizations.
Urban emergency food plans were not created to respond to the scope and frequency of the disasters we are experiencing today. The systems we have in place are not able to recover as quickly as communities need —often taking months to respond instead of days. What we have found is that the emergency institutions at the core of food system plans cannot adequately mobilize and respond to growing demands. This is where Feeding Cities Group comes in to work effectively with teams to prepare them for an adequate response to imminent disasters.
