Glasgow Food Policy Partnership’s Food Summit brought together over 150 stakeholders to start the process of developing a city-wide food strategy for Glasgow.
The Food Summit was organised jointly by Glasgow Food Policy Partnership, the Glasgow Centre of Population Health and Glasgow City Council in May 2019.
The Food Summit highlighted the importance of a city-wide, holistic approach to Glasgow's food system for improving health, for reducing food insecurity, for building community resilience and for mitigating the city’s collective impact on the environment.
The event also wanted to celebrate the great work that is already established in Glasgow and provide opportunities for shared learning, discussion, networking and to find out about local food businesses/projects.
Stakeholders attended workshops around 6 key areas of sustainable food:
After group discussions the audience were asked to fill out feedback forms to gather views about what issues they felt would be important to be part of the future strategy.
The day also included a ‘Speed Networking’ session designed to encourage information sharing and improve networks.
