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 and take part in the consultation HERE.

The official launch of GCFP was held on the 8th October and you can read the press release HERE. We are also working on a schedule of virtual events you can attend to hear more about GCFP, and the details will be added soon!

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 request one HERE.
