Food and nutrition training

Staff and volunteers working in community food initiatives (CFIs) should have some basic training in food and health and food hygiene. CFHS promotes food and nutrition training to CFIs and has occasional funding schemes to help cover the cost of training.

Our plan for 2017/18

As previously, we will be running a capacity building fund to support groups and agencies running food and health activities to build the knowledge, skills and expertise they need to help them deliver their activities better.
