We are pleased to share with you this University West of England report showcasing the value and achievements of Local Food Partnerships as they pivoted to respond to a period of national crisis. With a range of case studies from our vibrant network, this report highlights how our members stepped up to play a vital role in the food crisis relief effort, and continue to fill the leadership gap on local food issues in the post pandemic environment. 

Please do read and share with your networks, and we hope you find the findings as inspiring and affirming as we did.
