You are invited to join us at a Going for Gold Business Breakfast on Food Equality on Friday, 15 November 2019.
Find out how your organisation – no matter what size or sector – can be part of the solution and take action on Food Equality, and help move Bristol one step closer to becoming a Gold Sustainable Food City.
This is the fourth in a series of Business Breakfasts from Bristol Going for Gold, where you can find out more about the Going for Gold ambition, and discover how your organisation can be part of the biggest drive to change food in Bristol for good the city has ever seen!
What is Food Equality and how can organisations play a role?
Food Equality looks at two of the most vulnerable parts of the food system – those who grow and produce our food, and those who eat it. It means working towards a food system where the people who produce our food can make a fair living for the work that they do, and that populations – in this case, everyone living in Bristol – have access to nutritious and affordable food.
Bristol’s organisations have a vital role to play in making Food Equality a reality in the city and beyond, both in the buying choices they make and through the support they can offer to communities. Through Bristol Going for Gold, your organisation can find out how to make fairer food choices and discover how to support projects in Bristol that are working to end food insecurity. If you take action for a fairer food system this November and December you also have the chance to win Pukka Herbs tea and Wogan Coffee for your workplace!
Meyling Antonia González is a Fairtrade coffee producer from SOPPEXCCA co-operative in Nicaragua. Meyling will discuss what Fairtrade means to her community, and how climate change is affecting that community on a daily basis. Could your daily cup of coffee be in serious jeopardy?
Danni Rochman is Coordinator of Bristol Fair Trade Network. She’ll be making the connection between supporting local trade and supporting Fair Trade – the topic of their current campaign – and asking businesses to make the call for Fair and Local their own.
Jo Ingleby works in partnership with Feeding Bristol delivering food clubs and food workshops – a key part of the Food Equality theme. Jo will be talking about her important work and sharing news of an exciting new scheme that allows local organisations to help those most in need in the city.
Chrissie Storry of Bristol Food Network will chair the event, and will be speaking in more detail about the Catering and Procurement strand of Bristol Going for Gold. She will explore how Bristol’s food providers can support Food Equality at the same time as delivering an ambitious range of big and lasting changes for the city’s food offering.
Breakfast will be provided. Places are limited so early reservation recommended. Please register via Eventbrite.
