Jessica lives in North London and helps co-ordinate the Youth Food Movement (YFM) UK which is a network of young people, students, cooks, artisans and activists that are working to change the future of food and farming
YFM builds on the work of Slow Food and emphasises that food should be “good, clean and fair”. It is a movement that Jessica describes as a “state of mind” and is about sharing knowledge, offering support and nurturing leadership skills.
The YFM movement organises SkillShare events to encourage people to share knowledge such as how to bake bread and churn butter. They also organise Eat-In
events (they held one in Hyde Park last summer) where people gather together in a public space around specific food issues and share home-cooked food.
Jessica is currently working with YFM to establish a working group in London to start activities here. If you would like to be involved with this then get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
Outside of her work with Youth Food Jessica is an avid baker and home chef and also writes her own food blog.
