Soil Association Scotland wants to bring people of all ages and backgrounds together around good food to strengthen communities and spread the word. Food that’s good for us, good for the environment and good for the local economy should be available to everyone, no matter their background or income. Food for Life Get Togethers provide a fun and accessible way to connect communities in schools, care and community settings including gardens, kitchens and dining places right across our communities. To register, click this link. The Soil Association will then provide support, training and resources to help you have a great Get Together.
The Soil Association is also offering funding of up to £10,000 for community projects who can help deliver innovative ways of bringing people of different ages and backgrounds together through good food. Eligible partners include community groups, nurseries, schools, care homes, community health and social care settings, housing associations, charities and local groups. The closing date for applications is 12pm on 29 November.
