The half-day event will take place in Buchlyvie Village Hall on Wednesday 30 August from 9.30am -1.30pm, providing an opportunity for individuals and organisations to come together and explore good food.
Project Coordinator Stephi Stapleton Barnes said: “As the Good Food Nation Act progresses, emphasising the need for comprehensive local food plans, the timing for this event couldn’t be more fitting.
“We’ll be discussing the ways Stirling can become a beacon for good food and develop a vibrant, diverse and sustainable food economy. From combatting food poverty and nurturing community food projects, to ensuring access to affordable nutritious food and transforming local catering and procurement practices.
“We’ll also be looking at reducing waste and minimising the ecological footprint of our local food systems.”
Participants can look forward to a variety of engaging activities, from a long table lunch and networking session to inspiring keynote speakers and interactive workshops designed to shape the Food Action Plan.
Stephi added: “You’ll hear from the local food projects helping shape our local food landscape, including Forth Valley Food and Drink Network, and enjoy a locally sourced lunch catered by Port of Menteith based rural enterprise Fodder and Farm.”
