Food Plymouth CIC

Responding to recommendations set out in the Plymouth Fairness Commission (2014) and subsequent local evidence submitted to several APPI Hunger inquiries (2014, 2015 and 2016), an informal alliance of local partner organisations has been working towards tackling food poverty. We now aim to strengthen this alliance and 'join up the dots', using a co-design (community development) philosophy, to co-create a dynamic and democratically agreed action plan for the city.

Members: Plymouth City Council (Public Health); Livewell South west; CaterEd School meals cooperative; Food is Fun CIC; Devon and Cornwall Food Action; Plymouth Food Waste Partnership; Transforming Plymouth Together and others.

Established: Created in September 2017 (but early stage alliance development)
