What are 'Better Food Traders'?

9th May 2018, 2-3pm

Growing Communities and Sustainable Food Cities (SFC) are partnering up for this webinar exploring Better Food Trading.

Growing Communities
is in the process of developing a funding bid that will result in providing practical help to groups across the country wanting to become (or support) 'Better Food Traders'. This webinar is your chance to hear what we're proposing, signal your interest, and let us know what you think would help you set up or support a 'Better Food Trader' in your area.

This webinar is aimed at SFC coordinators and anyone who can answer yes to either of the questions below:

Are you interested in the idea of using local seasonal food to generate jobs, build community as well as bringing good food to the people of your area?

Are you looking for practical advice to support, or set up, not for profit enterprises that can be part of a fairer food system?

SUGAR SMART - embedding sugar reduction in local award schemes

22nd May 2018, 2-3pm

This webinar is organised by Sustainable Food Cities and Sustain and will focus on embedding SUGAR SMART actions in local certification and award schemes. A key challenge for local campaigns is ensuring that sugar reduction education and reduction of sugary food and drink on offer becomes standard practice. Embedding these actions in award schemes is a great way to create a legacy of healthier food provision and healthier food culture in local settings.

We will hear from SUGAR SMART Brighton & Hove and the council's long-running Healthy Choice Award programme, and from SUGAR SMART Cornwall on their work with the county-wide Workplace Health scheme. Participants will get a better understanding of such schemes and have a chance to consider opportunities to create a legacy of sugar reduction action in their localities.
