NOTICES OF MOTION

(1)       Children and Food Poverty -

 

To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr Gaynor Austin pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“This Council thanks volunteers and organisations who stepped up over the half-term period to help feed children in the Borough.

 

This Council resolves to support these volunteers and organisations, if necessary, in order to ensure that all local children are fed, whether term-time or not. This Council recognises the COVID-19 pandemic has increased levels of food poverty and food insecurity within the Borough.

 

This Council believes:

·         all Rushmoor residents should have access to sufficient safe, nutritious food; 

·         local councils can and must play a key role in tackling food poverty.

 

This Council therefore commits to:

·         nominate a Cabinet Member to have specific responsibility for reducing food poverty and insecurity in Rushmoor;

·         work to increase the take-up of Free School Meals;

·         urge the Government to enshrine its existing commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 (eradicating hunger by 2030) in legislation;

·         ask the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to investigate the extent and causes of hunger in Rushmoor and make recommendations to tackle it;

·         work with HCC and other partners to develop and implement a comprehensive and sustainable Food Access Plan which would look to eliminate food poverty in Rushmoor through the formalisation of an inclusive local Food Partnership.”

 

 

(2)       Citizens Advice Rushmoor –

 

To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr C.J. Stewart pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“This Council congratulates Citizens Advice Rushmoor for eighty years of service and support to the residents of Aldershot and Farnborough since the establishment of the first Citizens Advice branch in Aldershot in 1940.

 

Additionally, this Council affirms its commitment to this long and close partnership with Citizens Advice Rushmoor, and puts on the record its thanks for the advice, support and advocacy given and available to all residents including members of our armed forces in the Borough.”
