Building a Community Food Retail Project

The Food Cardiff project wants “to share knowledge and provide guidance to local community organisations which wish to set up a community retail project in their local areas” – whether it’s setting up or further developing a pantry, food co-op, larder, community fridge, food club or other type of alternative retail:

Here’s their brochure – and their Five Good Food Goals:

GOAL #1: A Healthy Cardiff
We want to ensure everyone has access to, has choice over and can afford nourishing,
healthy and culturally appropriate food.
GOAL #2: An Environmentally Sustainable Cardiff
We want the way food is produced, bought and consumed to benefit nature, tackle
climate change and prevent food waste.
GOAL #3: An Empowering Food Movement
We want to see communities working together to shape their local food system,
and for people to have opportunities to learn and develop skills in growing, cooking
and nutrition.
GOAL #4: A Thriving Local Food Economy
We want healthy, environmentally sustainable and resilient food businesses to be at
the heart of our local economy, and people working in this sector earn a decent living.
GOAL #5: A Fair and Connected Food System
We want to see food-related issues and solutions included across all local policies and
to see people work together to ensure action is joined up, and fairly distributed across
communities and areas of the city
