Networking and learning development

Knowledge and experience-sharing are key to developing the capacity of community food initiatives (CFIs), so CFHS facilitates a wide range of networking events, such as learning exchanges, roundtable discussions and study tours. Our aim is to engender cross-pollination of ideas not only among CFIs but also with public sector bodies.

In the autumn, our Annual Networking Conference is another great opportunity for people to come together and discuss food, health inequalities and social justice.

Our plan for 2017/18

In addition to our regular events, activities will centre on opportunities for information and knowledge exchange, along with opportunities to share best practice.  Networking and learning opportunities for the community food field will promote dialogue and enable a clear national voice for the community food field.  Those involved in the wide variety of community food activities can engage with one another, learn about new and existing practice and respond as a priority group to relevant issues.
