The Landworkers’ Alliance is working with the Independent Food Aid Network to find ways to connect producers with consumers in ways that improve access to good food for those experiencing household food insecurity or not able to access food for other reasons.
Funding has been made available for us to develop pilot projects testing and illustrating how funding to small farms can improve access to good food for all.
We are seeking to develop various models and best practice addressing the issue of access to sustainable food from different angles and scales. We’re interested in seeing projects that might be replicable and scale-able.
We’re asking for expressions of interest from farms who would like to take part in a pilot project to model how agroecological farms can support access to food for people in low income communities, people experiencing food insecurity or people at high risk from COVID 19.
As part of this pilot project, farms will be granted a budget of up to £10,000 from LWA to support any changes (equipment, staffing etc) to help them expand production and develop an innovative supply chain to deliver the pilot project.
