Moray Food Network is an informal network of community organisations, individuals and small businesses that are all enthusiastic about sustainable healthy local food. We want to see more Moray people involved with the food they eat and being healthier as a result.
We started by promoting fresh local food. We created the directory on this website so everyone could see where to buy local produce, and local food businesses could advertise their local food.
Now, we’re more focussed on helping people to improve their food skills, knowledge and confidence. Until the end of March 2017, we are offering free food growing and cooking workshops in Moray, and providing opportunities to become ‘Confidence to Cook’ trainers, as part of the Eat Canny project. You can read more about the ‘Eat Canny’ project here, and you can see the food workshops – and other food events – advertised here.
If you’d like to know more about the Moray Food Network and what it has achieved, have a look at the downloads page. Here you can find:
- the report for the first phase of MFN’s work (2013-14)
- community research explaining how and why MFN became involved with ‘Confidence to Cook’ and the results (2013-15)
- the interim report for the Eat Canny project (2016)
Moray Food Network holds occasional events to bring together those with an interest in food and health. We provide an update of what’s happening within the network and also ask speakers to give their input on a particular theme. There’s plenty of opportunity to network over the local soup and bread lunch.
So, Moray Food Network hopes to see more Moray people enthusiastic about eating Moray food and we’re keen to make it easier for them to produce it themselves or to buy from a diverse range of small local food businesses. We’d like to provide more opportunities for Moray people to find out about local seasonal food and how to grow, gather, cook and store it, as well as where to buy it, and about the benefits that local healthy food brings to individuals and the wider community. We seek to increase the co-operation of those involved in food and health in Moray so that we can learn from and support one another.
The Moray Food Network broadly supports the aims of Nourish Scotland in working for a fairer and more sustainable food system in Scotland. www.nourishscotland.org.uk
