Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

The potential to create a meaningful alternative to the industrialised huge-scale food system.

Inspiration:

Food is the porthole to the world – politics, social systems, power, class... you can understand them all through food.

Inspiration:

The way Local Food projects tackle obesity and poor diets head on. This is particularly important for children who come from families with little or no experience with fresh food preparation.

Aspiration:

Create greener, healthier, more vibrant communities that are self-reliant and sustainable, where skills and resources are shared. Better access to food-growing sites close to home.

Aspiration:

To become the main way in which people experience food production and the norm for consumption.

Aspiration:

That every housing estate in London and the whole country has space set aside however small or large for residents to grow food if they wish.

Inspiration:

Getting children to try fruit and veg for the first time.

Aspiration:

Creation of an awareness of local food to provide a robust, sustainable food source.

Aspiration:

That more and more local food projects will become financially sustainable and therefore can continue without grant funding.

Inspiration:

The confidence and friendly interaction it brings to people.
