Somerset Community Food supports a network of community food projects in Somerset. This includes growing projects such as community gardens, distribution projects such as food co-ops, and cookery classes. We run conferences and send out a local food newsletter several times a year.
In all our work we value choice, inclusion, compassion and mutual support.
Choice - We recognise that people have very different ideas about what constitutes 'good healthy food' and that a healthy diet can be achieved in different ways.
Inclusion - We want everyone to feel at home and comfortable in the events we run.
Compassion - We are committed to directing resources towards deprived people and communities in Somerset.
Mutual Support - We value the strength that comes from people working together in their local communities. By working together we can achieve solutions to the problems that face in securing a healthy supply of local, nutritious food.
We are currently funded as part of Somerset Zing
