The Power of Public Food: How the public plate can help build a green recovery

23rd March 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


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 at our disposal to drive transformation in food production and supply, and to prioritise the wider community wealth building agenda.

Join us to hear first-hand how public food is already making positive change internationally and right here in Scotland. With special guest speakers:

  • Joshna Maharaj
    Chef, activist and author of Take Back the Tray
    Toronto, Canada
  • Betina Bergmann Madsen
    Chief Procurement Officer, City of Copenhagen and public procurement specialist
    Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Dr Audrey Sutton
    Executive Director of Communities and Education, North Ayrshire Council
    North Ayrshire, Scotland
