More about U.Lab and the projects
Over the last 6 weeks, 25 food growers, activists, growers, writers and policymakers from Lambeth and beyond have come together to understand our food system.
Having mapped the different food needs, institutions, actors and potential innovations, visited Crystal Palace Food Market and educational growing projects, practiced tools that help teams work together effectively, looked at the whole food system from the perspective of everyone from supermarkets to food banks – the group of 25 came up with 6 different prototype projects.
Prototype 1: Lambeth: Going for Gold – a policy prototype aiming for a Sustainable Food City gold award for Lambeth
Prototype 2: The Community Cafe – a space where you can bring food, cook together, meet neighbours...
Prototype 3: The Buying Group Project – helping communities work together for better, cheaper food
Prototype 4: Vertical Growing Lab – a space where urban growing innovators can come together and learn from one another
Prototype 5: The Community Fridge – a fridge where restaurants and market traders can place surplus food – and anyone can take it
