While our population is beset with conditions such as obesity, many young families and the elderly can often experience seasonal hunger because of poverty. The role of the Food Health Working Group is to enable Healthy Living Centres to adopt a pro-active policy and positive practices within their communities, promoting and facilitating a healthier approach to food and nutrition. We are now working in collaboration with Safefood Ireland.

Members of the group are: George McGowanOld Library Trust, Tony DohertyHLC Alliance, Fionnuala DunleavyNewlodge/Duncairn Community Health Partnership, Gillian LewisResurgam HLC, Gráinne McMackenBelfast H&SS Trust, Dr Caomhan LogueUniversity of Ulster Dietetics, Joe CarmichaelLigoniel HLC, Naomi DavidsonFood Standards Agency, Rosie McCorleyTop of the Rock HLC, Ciara McElhinneyBogside and Brandywell Health Forum.
