Event Description

Making Local Food Work are delighted to announce that booking is now open for their final conference, Making Local Food Our Future.  It will be a national conference which will bring together the innovators, drivers and investors in the community food sector, to show how they are making a real impact by joining together and working collaboratively.

We all have something to contribute to the future stability of the food system. Making Local Food Our Future will be your opportunity to be inspired by real examples, to connect with the key stakeholders and to find out how to do it in your own community.

Making Local Food Our Future also marks the culmination of five years of Making Local Food Work, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, which has helped over 1,000 enterprises – and over 2 million consumers – reconnect with local food through community food enterprises.

Peter Couchman, Chief Executive of Plunkett Foundation, said: “Making Local Food Work has worked extensively across the community food sector for the past five years. This conference will be an opportunity to reflect on what we’ve learnt and apply it to the future development of the sector.

“Making Local Food Work has identified that clusters of community food enterprises – or local food systems – are beginning to work together to become stronger. From our experience, it’s clear that these systems have a range of economic and social benefits for food producers, retailers, other businesses and communities alike. This event will be a chance to explore how we can support the continued development of the community food sector to tackle the current issues faced by all communities, from unemployment to poverty to lack of access to fresh, healthy food.
