Over 15 student groups have been awarded start up costs and support from the Soil Association, to set up and run food markets on campus as part of the National Union of Students' (NUS) led Student Eats programme.
The support has included £1000 start up costs and training from the Soil Association, a partner on the Student Eats which aims to support 60 new student-led food enterprises, with funding from the Big Lottery Our Bright Future programme.
Will Marcombe, Farm Links Officer at The Soil Association, has been touring the UK and talking to those involved; this inspiring video provides a flavour of the challenges and successes the groups faced.
To find out about the food enterprises Sustain are supporting, in partnership with the NUS, visit the Food Co-ops website.
