Somerset Community Food was established as a Registered Charity in 2001. Our aim is to reconnect people with local healthy food through community action. We support the network of community food projects active in Somerset. We provide training, run community food conferences and send out a local food newsletter several times a year.
We also host Incredible Edible Somerset a forum and information hub for community food projects across Somerset. We are currently working with Somerset County Council and Somerset Community Foundation on the Somerset Growing Projects Network.
In all our work we value:
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 - It is our policy to provide an inclusive environment to all. We want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable at the events we run. We are opposed to all forms of discrimination.
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 are faced in securing a healthy supply of local, nutritious food.
