Hackney Food Poverty Alliance (HFPA) was formed at an initial meeting in October 2018 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. The HFPA was initiated by and is a sub-group of the Hackney Food Partnership.
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.
