About this Event

Launching Sheffield Food Forum - DISCUSSIONS OVER DINNER. A Food Works, Sheffield Hallam and Shef Food Collaboration.

Round 1: How do we find solutions and alternatives to a consumerist Christmas? Reducing waste and the ecological footprint on the food system.

Key note speaker – René Meijer, CEO Food Works.

Sheffield Food Forum aims to provide a platform for discussion focused on building a more sustainable food climate. Food Works and Sheffield Hallam University partner to provide relaxed events accompanied by delicious buffet style food, facilitating conversation surrounding key issues in our food system. A team of Sheffield Hallam students and staff work collaboratively with Food Works to provide a creative selection of canapes and dishes from food which would have otherwise ended up in landfill.

The events will be of interest to students, academics, local businesses, those working in the food waste and sustainability sector and the public, who wish to contribute to exploring ideas and finding solutions. Topics will address one or more of the 6 key areas of Shef Food, including:

Promoting healthy and sustainable food to the public

Tackling food poverty, diet-related ill health and access to affordable healthy food

Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects

Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy

Transforming catering and food procurement

Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system

Ticket includes a welcome drink, with a pay-as-you-feel donation for canapes and buffet dinner on the night.
