Event Details

Hear updates from the Food and Climate Action Project, as well as the City Food Plan team, and general updates on membership developments.


A chance for our network to come together to share ideas, connect and learn from one another. As always, a great way to meet other people working, volunteering and participating in community food projects across the city.

This gathering, our Food and Climate Action project team will be provided updates on the project including details of the new funding, an introduction from our new Project Manager, Donna McArdle, a look at our train-the-trainer sessions, Climate Crumbs, and an overview of our new focus, Composting for the Future

We’ll also hear from the Glasgow City Food Plan team with updates on the Plan’s progress as well as reflections on the City Food Summit on 6th September.

Lastly, the Directors will provide an update on Network membership development.


Open to members and non-members, organisations and individuals.

The format will follow a series of approximately 20 minute presentations from select speakers, followed by a networking lunch catered by our very own (new) Project Manager Donna McArdle, and then break out spaces for more open discussion.
