The Birmingham Food Council
Above is the presentation I’m giving this evening.
It is at the Sustainability Forum in the Council House. Just over a year ago, I gave a presentation: What it takes to feed the city, based on the scenarios project. I mooted then the idea of a Food Council.
Birmingham Public Health took up the idea. They asked Roger Harmer to draw up a Food Charter, which he’ll be talking about tonight.
Using Roger’s work as a basis, I’ve been talking to people over the summer about the Food Council governance, structure, terms of reference. This evening’s Sustainability Forum is an opportunity for people to hear about and comment on the work so far.
This is a very, very exciting development for Birmingham. I feel deeply privileged to have been asked to chair it.
