Community Food Fund

A- A A+

Lanarkshire Community Food and Health has been awarded a grant from the Community Food Fund to help source more local fresh fruit and vegetables direct from local growers. The funding will be used to develop a network of local producers from whom we will purchase fresh seasonal produce for our Lanarkshire wide community food co-op network.

A guide to Scottish fruit and vegetables will be produced and monthly events will be held at the 30 plus food co-op network promoting seasonal Scottish produce. John Cameron, Chair of LCFHP said “This is a great opportunity for us to work long term with small local producers and develop a partnership that allow us to distribute high quality fresh produce to low income communities across Lanarkshire.
