Our focus has been on developing activity around older people and food access. This work has included hosting a roundtable discussion, carrying out local and national research, developing good practice case studies, micro funding new initiatives, and supporting the roll out of successful initiatives nationally.
A CFHS study tour in October 2013 took representatives from community food initiatives working with older people in Scotland, the Scottish Government and NHS Health Scotland to London to look at different approaches to addressing food access and food poverty with older people.
Our plan for 2022/2023
CFHS is currently working with the Scottish Government, community food networks and our colleagues in Public Health Scotland to plan how the community food sector can be supported in the future.
