FoodFutures is launching a five year project called Closing Loops funded through the National Lottery Climate Action Fund. Closing Loops will support community-led action and local initiatives to transform waste into a valuable resource whilst cultivating a circular and regenerative local economy.

To celebrate the launch of Closing Loops, FoodFutures is hosting four “world cafes” in the heart of communities around our district. A “world cafe” brings people together for short, focused conversations around a specific topic. The outcome of these conversations will shape the work of the Closing Loops project over the next five years. The conversations will be followed by a two course meal cooked by a community chef using locally produced, seasonal and surplus food.

Please join the Closing Loops team for a pleasant evening of great food and inspiring conversations to celebrate the launch of the project. All are welcome to join in and share ideas around the Closing Loops themes:

  • Growing, cooking and eating local, seasonal food
  • Composting, surplus food and reducing food waste
  • Reimagining a circular and regenerative local economy

There will be a series of four world cafes in locations across North Lancashire. Please register on Eventbrite for one of the events below:





The sessions are free to attend. A two course dinner made by a local chef with locally grown, seasonal produce and rescued surplus food will be provided on a pay as you feel basis. If you are able, please make a donation when you register.

The Closing Loops team look forward to seeing you at one of the world cafes. To find out more about the Closing Loops project and how you can get involved in activities around gleaning, composting, cooking and regenerative enterprise, please click here.
