During the height of restrictions and now as we live with ongoing risk of Covid-19, the places we can walk or cycle to have become more important to us. Community support around food played, and will continue to play, a vital role. So whether an initiative continued to do what they normally do, changed and adapted things, or are just re-starting back up, we wanted to do something quick and easy to recognise and celebrate what we have access to locally.
#CommunityFoodNearMe is a social media campaign to recognise our local community food activity. Walk or cycle to one of your local initiatives, take a photo, then post it on twitter or facebook, using the hashtag #CommunityFoodNearMe. Also tag us and the organisation if they are on social media.
To start us off, team members will be sharing tweets about community food activity near them. Watch out for posts on organisations from Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Forth Valley. We hope that you can join us and celebrate community food activity across the country (and beyond).
