Food Chain Reaction

Here’s the report of our first event in May, when we reconnected with local food and found out about a host of amazing food projects in Southampton. Food Chain Reaction – Southampton report.

Of course there’s more stories to tell and more ideas to share. We are looking at ways for ideas to lead to action, so what could we do in Southampton to make a stronger connection with local food? Let’s keep the discussion and collaboration going through our Facebook page, Twitter and most importantly in person. Next stop the Sharing Picnic on 2 July from 4.30pm in Palmerston Park. Hope to see you there!

We talked, we shared, we ate….

Well we always knew that food could bring people together, but on 7 May 2014 at the Art House in Southampton, we showed that food could create the energy for change.

17 different food stories were shared from our city.  These stories were from individuals and groups who are taking the initiative to do something different with the way they source food. We heard from community farms, people who are joining together cooperatively to buy food and trees, individuals who are getting out there to gather and grow food, creative cooks foraging for ingredients, the shocking news of good food which goes straight to our city’s bins, and a new idea for insect eating.

Just some of the food stories that were shared on  7 May 2014.

And people wanted to connect with each other, want to meet again to share ideas and together grow a strong local food movement in Southampton. So we’ll be doing  summer picnic where we can all gather together again and continue the discussion.

Our next event will be on Wednesday 4 June at the Art House. We’ll be showing a film about Waste, and we’d love you to join us there. If you care about community and social change, these events are for you.

We’ll blog more about this soon, but here are some photos in the meantime.
