Sheffield Local Food Action Plan Launch Event
Join ShefFood at this special event celebrating the launch of the Local Food Action Plan for Sheffield 2023-2030!
Over the past 3 months, ShefFood has been building on the vision formed in Sheffield City Council’s Food Strategy ‘Fairer, Healthier, Greener’, to create a multi-stakeholder food action plan for Sheffield.
They have co-created the action plan with almost 100 organisations in the city and in collaboration with FixOurFood through a series of 12 workshops to write and co-develop the action plan, which addresses 5 key pillars of a good local food system: food provision, food production, the food economy, health and wellbeing, and the good food movement.
The action plan sets out specific commitments to action from diverse organisations across the city; over the next 7 years, these actions will take Sheffield’s food system on a journey to becoming fairer and more sustainable for people and planet.
The Launch Event is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the Local Food Action Plan, to hear from a range of speakers involved in transforming the city’s local food system, and to join ShefFood for a delicious pay-as-you-feel community meal!
