Kitchen Table Talks; Newton Stewart

The Scottish Government’s Good Food Nation Plan is out now for consultation. Citizens across the country are being asked to share their views: what does a Good Food Nation look like, smell like, taste like?
This is your opportunity to find out more about the plan, create your own response and pick up some tips for talking to others about it. This session will be friendly and informal. It’s open to anyone who eats food! Food is everyone’s business.

There are 6 main outcomes for the Good Food Nation Plan. We’ll be discussing and thinking through some of these outcomes.

1. Everyone in Scotland eats well. They can easily get safe, healthy, affordable, environmentally friendly food that suits their age and culture.
2. Scotland’s food system is good for the natural environment, the climate, wildlife and animal welfare.
3. Scotland’s food system helps everyone to have good physical and mental health.
4. Scotland is known around the world for high-quality food. Our food and drink industry is successful and forward-thinking. It is an important part of the national and local economy. It creates and sustains good jobs and businesses.
5. Scotland has a thriving food culture. Scottish people are interested in and educated about good and sustainable food.
6. Decisions we make in Scotland are good for food systems here and around the world. We share and learn from what other countries are doing.

This session is organised by Propogate and kindly hosted in partnership with Newton Stewart Initiative. There will be snacks!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The event is finished.
