- physical distancing precautions to consider
When: Tuesday 4th August 2020, 2.00pm through to 3.00pm
Whatever your focus pre-lockdown, community farms and gardens, as a sector, have undoubtedly stepped up to the mark to support food distribution among the most vulnerable in our communities this growing season. Often working alongside other community groups to be most effective. But how do we make sure these partnerships continue in the long term?
Join us to hear from a range of community gardens and farms with established food programmes that support those most at risk of food poverty within their community. Schemes include food banks, surplus food distribution, shared meals and community fridges.
