Joint Strategic Needs Assessment Food Insecurity Panel

System challenges

The system challenge of food insecurity on our communities is illustrated below.

This work in progress identifies a number of underlying causal factors that we believe account for food insecurity and/or poor diet.

In this map, all system challenges appear to limit the achievement of a “Healthy Diet” for people within our community. These challenges include poverty, poor/limited food choices, availability of fresh food and the skills to use healthy foods to prepare a good diet.

The embedded Kumu map, below, is interactive:

  • hover the mouse over an element of interest to see its immediate relationships
  • left click and hold to refocus the map on that element
  • to return to the wider map, left click and hold on any ‘white space’ in the map.

For greater interactivity and access to side panels containing additional information and links, follow the link under the embedded Kumu map (how do I read a systems map).

Logic model

This is a logic model of our theory-of-change for food insecurity related services provided by Local Authorities and non-governmental organisations. These services and the outcomes they are trying to achieve are illustrated here at a high level.

This work in progress identifies several key services and a wide range of sought after outcomes including positive environmental and economic outcomes.

This model suggests that there is an central management and engagement activity in the delivery of a wide range of deliverables.

Triangle of need

The number of people across Our Dorset who are food insecure and/or not eating a sufficiently nutritious diet are represented by the Triangle of Need.

Evidence base

Desired system change

Status: This Panel has not yet articulated what system changes it is trying to effect.

Additional input: We welcome further input from Panel Members.

Key questions

Status: This Panel currently has no pending questions - see JSNA Process Flow Chart:

 

Additional input: We welcome further input — both from Panel and non-panel members.

Filling knowledge gaps

We have attempted to understand what the Food Foundation Report, Affordability of the Eatwell Guide (see also, Four million UK children too poor to have a healthy diet study finds, Patrick Butler, Wed 5 Sep 2018), means for Our Dorset.

The results, below, suggest that more than half of the Our Dorset population is food insecure and/or not eating a healthy enough diet.
