12.15 - 1.00 Discussion about Local Food Production and food waste with Abby Nicol and Emily O'Brient

Emily O'Brien is Policy & Partnerships Manager for Brighton & Hove Food Partnership. The Food Partnership is nationally acclaimed for its work to join the dots in the food system strategically alongside practical projects like their successful Community Kitchen.. She will talk about The Surplus Food Network, an alliance of organisations tackling food waste by working with suppliers to distribute surplus to people in need in Brighton, Hove and surrounding areas. There is the beginnings of a similar network in Hastings, how could we expand that?
Abby Nicol is the founder of Pea Pod Veg: A working example of small scale organic agriculture feeding our local community. How do we build on that to create a local food network?
We will finish off with some bread and soup made with veg from Peapod (small donation requested). Please let us know if you are coming so we know how much soup to make.
