CFHS aims to ensure that everyone in Scotland has the opportunity, ability and confidence to access a healthy and acceptable diet for themselves, their families and their communities.
We support work with and within low-income communities that addresses health inequalities and barriers to healthy and affordable food.
Our work aligns with national food and health policy and our role includes linking policy makers and community food practitioners. We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations across the community, voluntary, statutory and private sectors.
In this section we aim to give a taste of what we have done by looking at the types of support we were able to offer, together with the groups of people and types of activity we were able to focus on. There is inevitably a crossover between these broad categories.
