The Food Learning Forum provides food focused organisations with a space to connect and share learning more effectively; explore key areas of opportunity and challenge in the sector and develop ways to address these; and to build the strength and leadership of our people and organisations so we can continue to tackle the food challenges of today, and tomorrow.
Established in 2019 and funded by the National Lottery, this Forum is made up organisations working to build a better, fairer, healthier food system. Their expertise ranges from food poverty, using food as a vehicle to bring people together, healthy eating and accessibility, sustainability and food citizenship.
Through workshops, webinars and learning networks members and the wider alliance have explored how a range of tools, topics and theories can be applied to their work in the food and farming sector. This includes behavioural insights, sense-making in a crisis, a values-based approach to communications, community organising, movement building and equality, diversity and inclusion.
The resources from the workshops and the webinars can benefit food partnerships, local authorities, community organisers, national organisations, local businesses and individuals.
