FoodFutures Coordinators

Anna Clayton

FoodFutures Coordinator

Anna Clayton

“It may seem obvious, but food is essential for life. However, how food is grown and distributed can also destroy life and the health of humans and our wider ecosystem. I’m involved with FoodFutures as I have seen first hand how food can be grown, processed and shared in a way that builds communities, human health and healthy environments. I want to support a movement that is working to build a just, fair and resilient food system here in North Lancashire that is aligned with groups and communities around the world that are doing the same thing.”

Jamie Murphy

FoodFutures Partnership Co-Chair

“I feel that food is central to how communities work. It has such a significant effect on our health, environment, culture, relationships and understanding of each other. Joining a network of people dedicated to making a difference about food locally, as a community development worker, was clearly something I needed to be part of and help to contribute to. FoodFutures is a broad, wide-ranging and welcoming network that has had a positive impact in all our communities across the North Lancashire District.”

Amy Kohl

Marketing and Communications Coordinator

Any Kohl

“Food is something we all have in common, it brings different communities, cultures and classes together. I am passionate about making sustainable living accessible and being one piece of the puzzle to create a healthy, fair and resilient and fair local food system.”

Lorraine Wheeler

Fundraising Advisor

“When I read the ten-year strategy for FoodFutures, I was completely sold on the vision. Ensuring North Lancashire has a resilient food system for the future is essential, and I am privileged to be a part of it.”

Community Food Skills

Beccy Whittle

Working Group Lead

“I love being part of FoodFutures because food is a fabulous way of bringing people together and helping us figure out how we can tackle big problems like climate change, biodiversity loss and social inequality in the place where we live.”

Lancaster District Food Justice Partnership

Rachel Tyrrell-Smith

Public Health Responsible for Food


“Public health nutritionist, passionate about ensuring everyone has access to a healthy, affordable diet.”

Jeni Meadows

Development Worker

“I joined the Food Poverty Alliance because I want to make the place I call home the best it can possibly be, for everyone who lives there. I’m passionate about bringing the community together to solve local problems, and I think food is one of the best and most inclusive ways to do that. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you want to chat about food provision in North Lancashire!”

Local Food Economy and Procurement

Ellen Pearce

Working Group Co-Lead and FarmStart Coordinator

“I’m passionate about local food and really committed to increasing the amount of people locally growing food, and the amount of fruit and veg grown locally.”

Joanna Poulton

FoodFriends Coordinator

“I’m super excited to be involved in such a progressive project as I really believe we need a radical system change and that growing seasonal food in a regenerative way is the most important behaviour change anyone can make in these times.”

Closing Loops

Rachel Marshall

Closing Loops Project Coordinator

“It’s been fantastic to see this project emerge from the FoodFutures strategy process and I’m so excited to have this opportunity to make some of them come to life. I will hold all the different strands of the project together, whilst making sure it stays connected with all the other great work happening across the district and the FoodFutures partnership.”

Diana McIntyre

Composting Coordinator

 “I remember my grandparents’ vegetable patch and their ways of making use of everything; their enjoyment and the everydayness of their relationship with food (growing) and compost has been passed down to me. The community composting role is giving me an amazing opportunity to work collectively in response to the current climate, biodiversity and food challenges we all face.”

Jay Godden

At Eggcup … Gleaning Network Coordinator

“I will be organising gleans in the local area’s farms and growing spaces to capture food that would have otherwise gone to waste. I will also be working closely with Eggcup to find food that can’t be sold but that is still good to eat, which Eggcup aims to redistribute to those in our district who are on a tighter budget.”

Nina Osswald

Closing Loops Engagement Coordinator

“Part of my role is to engage people living in North Lancashire in the CL project – at events and by telling the world about what we’re trying to do. I’ll also work on developing a One Planet Diet for North Lancashire along with recipes, which is great as I love cooking and eating. (I’m really just here for the food if I’m honest …!)”

Jonnet Middleton

REconomy Coordinator

“My role is to establish and support a culture of regenerative enterprise in North Lancashire. That means facilitating some massive shifts in how we perceive and structure our local economic activity. We need to rethink enterprise as not only a financial pursuit but also as a living system of activities and livelihoods which meet ecological imperatives and social needs. My niche skill is to make seemingly impossible things possible so I can’t wait to work with local individuals, businesses and groups to help make their regenerative enterprise ideas a reality.”

Andi Chapple

Communications coordinator

I am looking forward to develop FoodFutures’ markets and THRIVE magazine, and to work with people who have an eye on system change – this will balance my tendency to focus on small-scale projects and on individuals.”

Endar Kaur

At Global Link … North Lancashire Food & Chef Network Coordinator

“Alongside Nina, I will be developing a North Lancashire Food & Chef’s Network. I will be promoting awareness of climate-friendly food with organisations, food businesses and individuals across the region. My role will also involve supporting people to make more local, seasonal and sustainable food choices that reflect the people who live and work in the area”
