CFHS has commissioned research and evaluation in order to:
- build the evidence base on the nature and extent of community food activity in Scotland
- identify the contribution of this work in reducing health inequalities and barriers to healthy and affordable food
- explore new ideas for improving food and health work.
Findings are shared with community food initiatives (CFIs), policymakers and key stakeholders to promote learning and improve practice.
Our plan for 202/2023
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.
