Food from the ground up
‘Building short supply chains’
There is strong interest in local food as a result of Covid and Brexit, and community projects are well placed to create and strengthen local food chains. They may grow their own food, or they may help create markets for local farmers and growers through food hubs and direct sales. They may also help to develop a lively food culture that builds trust and interest in local food, encouraging the public to see themselves as citizens rather than consumers, and so indirectly supporting new supply chain initiatives.
