Should North Lancashire work towards a Gold Sustainable Food Place Award?

The Sustainable Food Places Award is a national scheme that recognises and celebrates the success of places taking a joined up, holistic approach to food. It celebrates places that are achieving significant positive change on a range of key food issues – from tackling food poverty, through to supporting farmer transitions, growing local food economies and increasing access to healthy food.
North Lancashire has already received a silver award for the amazing work going on across our District. As there is momentum and so much good food work going on, FoodFutures is asking: should North Lancashire go for Gold?

What does going for Gold involve?

If North Lancashire as a region was to go for Gold, it would involve continuing to deliver the Our Food Futures community food strategy for North Lancashire, and supporting the amazing work that is already going on. It would involve joining things up even more and embedding sustainable food policies into local authority strategies and approaches; into anchor institution procurement policies and into business approaches… so ultimately, all the other stuff can grow and thrive.

Should North Lancs go for Gold?

Let us know your thoughts through the ‘Should we go for Gold?’ poll.
And if you are up for this collaborative challenge, what do you pledge to do as an individual, business or organisation, to help make it happen?
