Event description
Brighton & Hove inspires "How has a pandemic changed the way we feed a city" event series of live stream panels and discussions.

About this Event

Throughout 2020, individuals and organisations across the country found new ways to ensure food reached those in need. In Brighton & Hove, this work led to it becoming the first Gold Sustainable Food Place in the UK, recognising pioneering work around good food.

From this, UnLtd, along with Isolation Station Hastings are hosting an event series, 'The Fair Food Forum - How does the pandemic change the way we feed a city?' which will bring together key figures in the community food sector to discuss the challenges and opportunities triggered by the pandemic, as well as the learnings we can take to improve food distribution in the future.

Each event will feature a live stream panel (on Facebook & YouTube), followed by a participatory event to showcase local ventures and create a space to share support and understanding.

This is the third part of this series taking place on Friday 5 March (livestream) followed by a participatory event on Friday 12 March (Zoom) answering the question: What is urban growing good for?

Friday 5 March (12:00 - 13:00)

  • Mark Carroll, Brighton & Hove Allotments Federation
  • Bryn Thomas, Brighton Permaculture Trust
  • Jess Bayley, Centre for Ecotherapy
