Great lunch with the lads and lasses at Street Life Blackpool. This followed an hour spent with Beverly, who runs the Salvation Army Bridge project in Blackpool (in an architectural gem / ex grammar school building).
Something surreal about being in Blackpool in the middle of summer, with a glut of cafés, food stalls, candy floss, etc available seemingly from every retail space, and yet every town the streets are populated with people that struggle to put food on the table, or simply can’t afford to eat. How is it that we’ve ended up with a First World Food Crisis?
We’re looking forward to working with the people we met today, and the ones we’ll meet later, to look into this issue more closely.
