Responding to the findings from the Good Food Plan research, specifically the need for long-term investment in community-led, business and enterprise support and development, this will be a great opportunity to learn from a successful, comparable model and to make connections to like-minded networks and projects elsewhere in London.
GCDA have been supporting communities to be healthy and sustainable since 1982, and their holistic approach to growing healthy, good food enterprises involves:
- developing enterprises, which meet economic and social needs and are cooperatively managed.
- delivering training programmes and courses, which build the knowledge and skills of the community and partners we work with across the area’s core to our aims; enterprise, health and the environment.
- creating community hubs – based on cafes, farms, allotments, marketplaces and training centres
- promoting healthy lifestyles to the whole population, particularly those experiencing health inequalities, their physical and mental well-being is improved.
