Last month saw the launch of a piece of work we undertook for Making Local Food Work (MLFW). MLFW is a Big Lottery funded programme involving the Plunkett Foundation, FARMA, CPRE, the Soil Association, Country Markets, Co-operatives UK and Sustain that helps people to take ownership of their food and where it comes from by providing advice and support to community food enterprises across England.
MLFW commissioned us to look at whether the body of work on how to change people’s behaviour could offer any help in promoting local food and community food enterprises. Out of that research we were asked to draw up practical guidance that will help community food enterprises increase their local food sales, reach more people, and help those people lead more sustainable lives.
