Discussion groups

There were seven groups following the key issues suggested by the Sustainable Food Cities Network. The notes are mainly from the flipchart sheets written at the meeting.

1. Sustainable supply chains

2. Community food

3. Food enterprises

4. Food waste

5. Food poverty and access

6. Education and skills

7. Public sector food

It is significant that proposals from three of the seven groups specifically mentioned a hub or resource centre for community food projects and enterprises, as well as education. This is something that we will aim to take forward .
