As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences and Green Great Britain Week, YESI, IKnowFood, the UK National Food Strategy (NFS) and Good Food York have come together to hold a Citizen Food Assembly to get the views and opinions of York Citizens on the UK’s food system.
Food...if you eat it, grow it, make it or sell it, come and join us.
Join the conversation around sustainable healthy diets, food poverty and food waste, and help define how York's food system should be changed to the benefit of all. A sustainable lunch will be provided!
