Who are we?
Glasgow Community Food Network was established in 2017 to bring together practitioners and organisations in the private, public and third sectors along with other interested individuals to develop a flourishing food system in Glasgow. We aim to work with everyone with an interest in food: chefs and restaurants, farmers and market gardeners, foodbank and soup kitchen volunteers and anyone else who cares about better food for Glasgow. We want to see a city where high quality, fresh, local, organic produce is available and affordable for all and where good food is a celebrated part of our culture.
Glasgow Community Food Network emerged from a consultation by Glasgow Local Food Network where it was decided that a more formal organisation was required. GCFN was constituted as a Community Interest Company in May 2017.
What do we do?
We hold seasonal networking events where members share a meal and learn more about each other’s work. These events usually feature short talks from interesting speakers as well as some structured discussion of ways to develop and improve our food systems.
We also conduct and support research and development of improvements to Glasgow’s food system. As a member-led organisation, we are always open to new ideas in this area.
