Food Summit Event

Fri 4 Dec 2015

A wide range of different organisations – from the public, private and VCSE sectors- took part in the first food summit, organised by the Staffordshire Rural Forum, at Rodbaston on 30th November.

There were interesting presentations from Tom Andrews of Sustainable Food Cities and Kay Johnson of the Lancashire Local Food Partnership which showed the breadth of food issues which can affect all aspects of our lives from food poverty and health issues to food production and business impact.

Staffordshire Rural Forum are likely to pursue the idea of a Staffordshire food plan to develop new initiatives and joint working. Any VCSE organisations which would like to be involved in this can contact Jill Norman at Support Staffordshire on jill.norman@supportstaffordshire.org.uk or Hilary Foxley at Staffordshire County Council on hilary.foxley@staffordshire.gov.uk
