Fife Food Summit (online event)
Making food good for all in Fife and our planet.
Making food good is everyone’s business. This includes growing and producing food, distributing and sharing it, accessing and eating it and how we deal with waste from food. Everything we do around food in Fife is important to our people, communities, public places, businesses, our economy, and our land.
The Fife Food Summit will take place online on Tuesday 22nd June 2021 from 9.30am – 1pm. The event will be chaired by Pete Ritchie, Executive Director Nourish Scotland, Farmer and Food Expert. The Keynote Speakers are two inspiring examples: UN Climate Change Award Winners 2019 Ghent en Garde (Belgium), and Edible Edinburgh who will talk about how new approaches to food are making an impact for people, the economy and the planet. Themed workshops will explore ideas and examples of work that are happening both within and out with Fife to inspire changes we can make.
The Summit will focus on key themes including reducing food waste and keeping good food in circulation, how we can use and procure local and seasonal food more, and work better together to bring about good food for Fife and our planet. It will also launch the first steps towards creating a sustainable climate-friendly Food Partnership and Vision for Fife that is being developed by Fife Council’s Climate Change and Zero Waste Team. It’s a great opportunity to bring people, communities, organisations, professionals, businesses, students, the public and private sectors and anyone interested in influencing our food in Fife.
