Enfield Council is conducting two surveys on food poverty in Enfield - one for local residents and one for community groups.

What is food poverty?

“Food Poverty” is a contested term but the Department of Health state that it can be defined as the inability to afford or have access to the food needed for a healthy diet.

Who does food poverty affect?

Many factors determine what does or does not end up on our plate. Households with lower incomes, lower than average educational outcomes and in low paid employment will be more at risk of food poverty.


This survey aims to find out

  • the experiences of Enfield residents in getting affordable, nutritious food
  • the barriers to getting affordable, nutritious food
  • the opportunities for making it easier to get affordable, nutritious food.
