Community Development Funds
Community Food Initiatives operate in many disadvantaged areas and attempt to encourage people on low incomes to make healthier choices. They tackle food poverty by developing community based initiatives to encourage healthy eating. By developing people’s awareness of food and their food skills, the availability and accessibility of nutritious food can be greatly improved.
A wide range of stakeholders are currently involved in the development of community food initiatives on the island of Ireland including community development projects, family resource centres, tidy towns groups, youth projects, local development companies, social enterprises, Local Authorities and others.
