Our keynote speaker will be Martin Caraher, reader in Food and Health Policy at City University. He has worked extensively on issues related to local sustainable food supplies, the role of co-ops in promoting health, farmers markets and food access.
The main focus of the conference is on helping food co-ops and other community-run food outlets become more sustainable. The conference aims to provide a forum to facilitate networking, sharing experience, launching our new food co-ops toolkit and, through a number of workshops, sharing findings on areas investigated in the first year of the programme. We will be having presentations from food co-ops from across the country and will be covering areas such as needs assessment, governance, suppliers, education and volunteer support in the afternoon workshops.
