Sustainable Food Cities Network Support: what next?

We want to provide an opportunity for member cities to help shape the development of Network Support for Phase 2. To this end Food Matters will be organising a series of half day workshops in early February 2017. We want to ensure the workshops are as accessible as possible so please let us know where you would like to see them take place and if you would be interested in hosting one.
