The Power of Public Food

How the public plate can help build a green recovery
23 March 2021, 18:00 - 19:20

Food for Life Scotland is hosting Scottish local authority decision makers and influencers for a webinar with international and local speakers offering inspiring insight on public food.

Public food is not merely calories on a plate, but a powerful tool for social, environmental and economic change. As Scotland plans for a green recovery, food provides huge potential for positive change. Public procurement of sustainable and local food is one of the most effective mechanisms to drive transformation in food production and supply, and to prioritise the wider community wealth building agenda.
