Local Food Survey

5 April – 18 December 2020

Online and on social media

Good Food Collective

We are launching a project to look into ways of improving our local food infrastructure and access to healthy, locally made produce.... Together with the Good Food Collective members, we'd like to learn more about what's missing, what's happening and what people would like to see more of in Barking & Dagenham's food systems.

Are you a local food + drinks grower, trader or producer?
In 2020 Company Drinks are speaking to residents, producers, growers, makers and foodies; and we’ll be asking how we can help make selling or buying locally made, healthy food more accessible to local residents…


The Good Food Collective will be testing out new ideas, making great food and sharing ideas for improving access to locally made, grown or shared food….


If you can spare 5-10 minutes, we’d really appreciate if you could fill in our LOCAL FOOD SURVEY and tell us a bit about what you love/want to see more of in Barking & Dagenham’s food systems
