Based on years of collaborative action in Glasgow and beyond, the Food & Climate Action project aims to work alongside local communities to co-create a more resilient food system that is fairer and kinder to both people and the planet.

Led by Glasgow Community Food Network and funded by the National Lottery, the 2-year project is a partnership between Urban Roots, Glasgow Eco Trust, The Space, St Paul’s Youth Forum and Central & West Integration Network.

The project has five key strands of activity including: increasing urban agriculture within the city, engaging and empowering people of all ages through food education, establishing community-led green assemblies, supporting action around COP26 and collating all learning in an online food hub. The work connects to wider action on climate and food through policy and campaigns activity including the aims of the Glasgow City Food Plan.

Our Food and Climate Fund is now live. We're making 10 x £1500 available to community groups in Glasgow for projects which are linked to the food system and include climate action.

Applications close on 26th May, 5pm.
