Activity in this final quarter of the Well London, Buywell project has been focused on completing the final project evaluations and supporting partners with their exit strategies from Well London to become sustainable community food enterprises.
This has included supporting the re-launch of South Acton Food Co-op and White City Food Co-op, running a workshop and joint networking event with Making Local Food Work Food Co-ops and Buying Groups strand, and engaging a new retailer in Queen’s Park in the Buywell Retail project, who has taken over a store that was previously part of the scheme. This quarter we have also helped establish the Buywell Retail project in two stores in Camden.
Funded separately, we have also been running the London Borough’s project, co-ordinating a series of meetings to support Local Authorities on their food work. We have also been working on the development of a Good Food Map of London boroughs, highlighting postive action that Local Authorities can take to help implement the London Food Strategy.
