Throughout 2018 Food Plymouth has continued to survive and succeed on what is essentially a shoe string, working to achieve successful collaborative partnerships in order to achieve our shared goals of a more connected, resilient and sustainable city.
The on-going enthusiasm and generosity of the Food Plymouth core team and the wider network and partnership has been essential for moving our excellent and externally-validated collaboration forward.
Thanks to Livewell Southwest and their generous match funding, the Sustainable Food Cities (SFC) Coordinator role, held by Zoe Nile, has continued to facilitate partnership and network meetings and other group events in relation to the Sustainable Food Cities Silver Status drive. The coordinator role also supports the Thrive Plymouth Year 5 initiative, coordinates communication through directors, theme leadership teams, the network and Food Plymouth’s ‘direct delivery projects’. Communication and Networking is also a prominent feature of the role, assisting in the development of short and long term plans for SFC themes, arranging and supporting events and of course producing this e-bulletin, an integral medium for bringing opportunities and sharing the news and achievements of Food Plymouth, the partnership and network far and wide!
