Glasgow City Food Plan Consultation is now LIVE…

Between beginning of October and end of December 2020 citizens, communities, businesses and organisations in Glasgow are invited to submit their views on the proposed Glasgow City Food Plan (GCFP), using their knowledge, experience and expertise about what works and what more is needed to improve our food system.

The online consultation is now open hosted on the Glasgow City Council consultation page to enable a wide range of views to be shared. You can read the draft plan, the summary and take part in the consultation HERE. Consultation questions can be found HERE, and a summary of Actions and Outcomes can be seen HERE. We have done our best to inform people without digital access about the consultation and have sent flyers and response forms to various organisations in the city to help us with this.

We hope to engage with a wide number of people from different backgrounds during the consultation and engagement period. To help us do this, we have put together a Communications Toolkit, that is available for you to use. It includes information about the consultation with suggested tweets and images about GCFP. You can find it HERE.

We are organising a series of ENGAGEMENT EVENTS for people to get involved with. These include:

  • The official launch of GCFP, which was held on the 8th October; you can read the press release HERE.
  • Community Conversation about Glasgow City Food Plan took place on the 18th November.
  • There are several dates for Consulting Your Community workshops coming up, and you see further details and book your place HERE.
  • A targeted event for the Business Community will take place on the 8th December and further details and a booking link is available HERE.
  • If you want to run your own event on the Glasgow City Food Plan, but can’t attend one of the above events, there is Train the Trainer’ pack available HERE.
