Where does My Food Community Work?

My Food Community Projects

My Food Community projects are happening all across the UK. We’re proud to have members from Belfast to Bury, from Swansea to Stockport.

My Food Community takes place mainly online. This helps bring people from across the UK together. But the group does meet in person too, which is enjoyed by all!

Who do we work with?

We are working with our national partners and Koreo – a learning consultancy specialising in leadership for social change – to bring My Food Community to you.
