Over the last seven years at the Fife Diet, we’ve seen huge changes in the local food system, both here in Fife and further afield. But for many people, we understand that accessibility and affordability can still be a huge barrier. We think a Fife Food Co-op could be the answer to this, focusing on bringing fresh, affordable produce to communities across the region.
Our plans include providing better access to wholefoods, soft fruit, organic meat, gluts, gleaning, and an outlet for smallholders and community growing projects.
We’ve put together this survey using ideas that we’ve gathered from members over the years. We’d really appreciate it if you’d take the time to answer these ten questions that will help us build our vision of a new food system. We’re hosting a Burns Supper for potential members of the new Food Co-op Steering Group on the 25th January – please leave your details at the end of the survey if you’d like to join us for this.
As a thank you, we have some delicious local food to give away to people who complete the survey! First prize will be a fantastic hamper from Delight Deli in Kinghorn, with 10 runners up receiving a £10 voucher for a local farm shop near you.
If you have any questions, ideas or revelations, get in touch with Elly who is steering the project through its early stages – firstname.lastname@example.org – or leave a comment on this blog
