Key Issue 3:

building community food knowledge , skills, resources and projects


Grass roots energy, innovation and action are the engine of positive change and it is vital that individuals and communities can build the knowledge, skills, resources and projects to make that change happen.

In Cambridge:

Transition Cambridge groups, such as Cropshare provide opportunities for people to learn about community food growing.

Allotment provision is increasing alongside community gardens, which encourage new people to participate in vegetable growing.

CSF and others provide training opportunities on food buying, cooking, nutrition and hygiene skills for a variety of audiences including low-income families, young adults and vulnerable older people.

Cookery Workshops

We run a number of free cookery workshops in various parts of the city, funded by Cambridge City Council.
