    • IntroductionWelcome to Community Food Projects: a directory, the first printed directory of projects on theFood Poverty Projects Database. The Database is maintained by the Food Poverty Network, partof Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming, in collaboration with the HealthDevelopment Agency. It contains a great variety of projects, all working at the local level toimprove access to healthy food for people on a low income.The projects include food co-operatives, community cafés, school breakfast clubs, cooking clubs,food growing projects and farmers’ markets. This directory will be useful for anyone with aninterest in local food initiatives, especially anyone running or trying to start a community foodproject. We hope it will encourage you to contact people already working in the field. We cannotover-emphasise the importance of networking and learning from other peoples experience.The directory gives an excellent overview of the huge range of projects currently running. Wehope you will find the examples here inspirational, as well as useful in giving you theinformation you need. By reading the project summaries, you should get a feel for the amount ofenergy and imagination that goes into these projects.We have also included a list of Regional Development Agencies, Strategic Health Authorities andthe Primary Care Trusts within their remit, plus a list of other useful contacts.What is the Food Poverty Projects Database?The Food Poverty Projects Database was formerly called the Food and Low Income Database. Itwas launched in 1996 to enable people working on local food projects to find out about eachother, make contact and pool experience in a way that had never been possible before. There arecurrently more than 267 community food projects on the database, from across the UK and theRepublic of Ireland. Between them they carry out more than 700 activities, ranging from growingand selling food to cooking and eating it. Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming •1•
    • What is the Food Poverty Network (FPN)? The Food Poverty Network exists to support local food projects, and campaign on their behalf for changes to government policy that would help to end food poverty. Food poverty can be briefly described as the inability to obtain an adequate, nutritious diet. It comes as a surprise to many people that even in the midst of the apparent wealth and abundance of our society, the effort to eat well and feed the family is a daily struggle for millions of people. The problems they face include insufficient funds, difficulty in reaching shops which sell appropriate, nutritious foods at affordable prices, and lack of time, skills or information. Food poverty can affect many people at some stage in their lives - for example adults and children living on benefits, lone parents, the elderly, the disabled, and students. The Food Poverty Network, whose members include members of local food groups, local authority workers, health workers, dietitians, nutritionists and researchers, works to raise awareness of these issues and campaigns for policy changes that would alleviate them. Besides maintaining the database, the Network produces a quarterly members’ newsletter, Let Us Eat Cake!, which is also sent free to all projects on the database. It has also produced a range of publications (available to Network and Database members at a discount price), and organises local seminars to bring together people working on food-related issues in different regions. Using the database online The database can be accessed online at www.foodpovertyprojects.org.uk. Using the database online gives access to more information than is listed in this directory, including a list of any materials a project produces, project opening times, how many users it has, when it started and how it is funded, managed and evaluated. The information is also updated regularly, as new projects are added. There are two main ways of searching the database: by location or project type. Searching by location allows you to find projects in a particular county, or in a particular type of location (eg all projects in inner cities). Searching by project type can either list projects by activity (eg all food-growing projects) or by type of user (eg all projects involving primary school children). Under the advanced search option you can carry out a more detailed search, for example by material type (eg all projects producing recipe books). If you do not have access to the internet, and would like to see the latest entries on the database or obtain fuller details on a particular project, Sustain runs a telephone enquiry service on 020 7837 1228.•2• Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming
    • How To Use This DirectoryWe hope this directory will allow you to find out about initiatives in your region, so the projectsare listed by county. However, there are also two indices at the back showing the projects listedalphabetically by name and by activity, so you can also find all the projects which include, forexample, a breakfast club.Each entry contains contact details, a summary of the project’s aims and activities, and usergroups.We decided not to include email contact addresses as, apart from the problems of junk email andviruses increased by publishing email addresses, they often go out-of-date when contacts changejobs. If you have access to the internet, you can see if the project you are trying to contact has anemail by searching the online directory.We have included only projects which are running at the time of going to press (February 2003).However, funding in this area is scarce and there is a high turnover of projects: you maytherefore find that unfortunately some projects are no longer active. Please be aware, too, thatthis directory provides an overview of the different types of work going on, but is by no means acomprehensive list of all the projects currently active in the UK.One of the most effective ways to learn about different types of work is through direct contact.Please do not hesitate to get in contact with any of the projects listed, to have a discussion orarrange to visit.We hope you find the directory useful. Whatever your experience of using it, we’d like to hearfrom you. Any comments - positive or negative - will help us to improve future editions.
