Purpose statement

The Nonprofit Alliance Food Security Working Group is a group of social sector professionals who desire to collectively increase nutritional food security in Bermuda and whose organization’s provide food aid support as a core service.

Vision statement

A Bermuda where nutritional food security is available to all residents. 

Problem the Group seeks to address as a collective:

An historically non-cohesive, reactionary and isolated approach to food security in Bermuda where the root cause of food insecurity is not well understood nor collectively addressed.

Goal

To build awareness, understanding and a collective approach to food security and food security services in Bermuda by 2025.

Expected Outcome

A more aligned, more effective and more efficient continuum of food security services; and increased understanding of food security in Bermuda.

Strategies

  1. Researching, mapping and publicizing the community need, continuum and capacity of systems and services that currently address the needs of the food insecure.
  2. Identifying gaps within these systems and services, and the opportunities to introduce best practices in addressing these gaps:
  3. Undertaking collective advocacy through and on behalf of those threatened with food insecurity, to argue, defend or petition at all levels, the removal of barriers that disproportionally diminish opportunities for Bermudian residents to secure nutritional food
