As part of Kenny McBride’s work as Poverty Project Worker – Closing The Gap and his project’s work on food he was made aware of the need for greater co-operation and communication between foodbanks, growing projects and generally reforming the food system.
www.glasgowfoodforum.org offers areas to discuss foodbanks, community growing, food poverty and other issues around food from restaurant reviews to recipes. There’s also a private forum to discuss the development of common campaign themes. If you’d like to get involved in the debate, please have a look at the site and sign up. You can also follow us on Twitter @Glasgow_FF.
Please also forward this on to anyone else you feel may wish to contribute to the discussions!
