Somerset Community Food, is a grass-roots charity which aims to re-connect people with the social, health and environmental effects of growing, buying, preparing and eating local food.

We have developed a unique training package that has successfully taught hundreds of people to start growing & cooking food.

Our 'Get Set Grow' and 'Get Set Cook' packages give flexible and fun opportunities to learn food growing & cooking. We are funded through Zing Somerset and also carry out other commissioned work.



It's better consumed than composted! We have recently created a Food Surplus Directory collating details of local groups who can benefit from gluts and surpluses.

Visit our Resources page where you will find links and extensive information on all aspects of community food.
