The Local Food Support Group

The Local Food Support Group (a core group of 15 members) is mobilizing new, enthusiastic members to join the Local Food Network. The Local Food Support Group is comprised of Representatives from Local communes (local councils), Non-governmental organizations involved in Agriculture,  private companies, working in agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, services, trade and business consulting as well as  individual farmers. The members profiles vary from urban farmers, food cooperatives, local food retailers, entrepreneurs, coaches in creating a kitchen garden, a picking garden and compost,  neighborhood initiatives to improve the Municipality by growing food creating interaction between cultures and so on. For some, food is their main source of income, while for others they try to combine it with a part-time or fulltime job to be able to make a living. Although a group of over 350 people are part of the Local Food Network,  a core group of 15 members is actively involved in the Local Food Network meetings and  providing support in the Development of the  Local  Food Action Plans. Local  Food Action Plans have been adopted in the belief that a bottom-up approach is a key element of success for realization of  sustainable Food actions, far more than a top-down, (food) policy in which the local community finds itself hard to recognize.  In addition, Local Food Action Plan can yield benefits of sustainable food in relation to social, economic, health and environmental aspects, as well as appointing concrete actions to be realized in the field of growing, delivering and enjoying. With regards to the aim of reducing CO2 emissions and the focus on lowering the impact of food production, - distribution and –consumption on the environment, the objective of the initiative is to find ways for sustainable distribution solutions of local food (delivering).
