About this event

Dynamic Purchasing UK Food presents: a new match funding opportunity from the Dixon Foundation

This event is open to all. Dynamic Purchasing UK Food is presenting a unique match funding opportunity from the Dixon Foundation, which is looking for applications to a major new funding source.

The Dixon Foundation match funding challenge

The Dixon Foundation opens its new challenge, “How can we shorten and improve the transparency of supply chains used by public sector anchor institution food procurers in the UK?”

In partnership with Dynamic Purchasing UK, The Dixon Foundation has created a match funding challenge that is open to regional food networks who can convene anchor institutions motivated to roll out dynamic food procurement in the UK public sector.

This event will launch the new funding opportunity as it opens to applications. The Foundation recognises that, across the UK, different geographies are at different stages in their journey with setting up dynamic food procurement in the public sector. In order to support the specific needs of food networks at each key stage, The Dixon Foundation is offering three different levels of financial support - please join this event to find out more about the technical details and objectives.

Event details

This event will be hosted by:

  • Chrissie Storry, Coordinator of Dynamic Food Procurement National Advisory Board, and includes presentations by:
  • Glenn Woodcock, Director of DPUK Food and
  • Amy Whight, Grants Manager of the Dixon Foundation

There will be a Q and A session with all the presenters, who encourage you to attend to find out more about this unique funding opportunity to bring dynamic food procurement to the UK.

Establishing dynamic food procurement for every region in the UK is the goal, and representatives for each region are sought to lead the change.

Register now, and we will send a link to attend the online meeting beforehand

Supported by DPUK Food

At every level, Dynamic Purchasing UK Food will offer successful applicants technical support and advice in order to set up and implement dynamic food procurement in their region of interest.

Dynamic Purchasing UK Food was launched last year to address the issues of climate change, food security, food poverty and diet-related disease. DPUK aims to achieve this via supporting the national take up of a dynamic food procurement model by anchor institutions. This will enable more short, transparent food supply chains to be adopted by buyers in the public sector or in anchor institutions in their region

This online event will present the funding challenge and give details on how to apply. We encourage you to attend even if you don’t think your organisation is in a position to apply, as you may discover other interested organisations in your region to collaborate with.
