We are a cross-sector partnership of local public agencies, businesses, academic and community organisations committed to working together to create a more sustainable food system for Sheffield. Why should you attend? Your participation will significantly increase the ability of Sheffield to achieve a Sustainable Food Cities Bronze Award by 2020, which is all about recognising Sheffield as a city taking action across '6 Key Issues': 1.

Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects 4. Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy 5. Transforming catering and food procurement 6. Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system What will you be asked to do? The workshop will involve a series of engaging activities designed to help capture what you and your organisation are doing towards achieving significant positive change on a range of key food issues.
