The discussion paper Choosing the Right Ingredients – the future of food for Scotland sets out the Scottish Government’s vision for food in Scotland.
Community Food and Health (Scotland) believes that the experience and understanding of disadvantaged communities will be crucial in ensuring future policy around food is inclusive and is keen to assist Scotland’s low-income communities to have their say by:
- raising awareness of the discussion paper and encouraging individual responses
- holding a FREE national event on 18 March 2008 in Glasgow (11am-3pm) for those involved in food and health activity in low-income communities, to facilitate discussion and collect responses to feed back to the Scottish Government.
- offering funding (max £500) to support local/regional meetings on the future of food in Scotland.
