Mapping Local Food Webs Toolkit

Mapping Local Food Webs Toolkit

Mapping your local "food web" - the connections between producers, retailers and consumers - highlights its importance for your local economy, landscape and community. Our toolkit provides all the materials and guidance you will need for a successful project.

"The toolkit is invaluable for local people campaigning for farmers' markets or against supermarkets. It will help you to gather information and evidence which will engage the council and community and gather real momentum behind local food."
Rosemary Moon
Cookery writer and local food champion in Chichester

Using the toolkit
The toolkit contains meeting plans, questionnaires and guidance notes to help you gather, analyse and present information from your local food web. As well as promoting local produce and independent shops, the toolkit will help you develop local food strategies and feed into Neighbourhood Plans to protect the benefits of local food in your area.
