Revolutionising the local food scene
Community Action:MK are delighted to be supporting this new exciting initiative in Milton Keynes, run as part of the MK:Smart project.
MK Food Revolution, an initiative which aims to increase the visibility and production of local food, have announced the launch of their MK Food Passport for Saturday the 21st November 2015 at Wolverton Farmers Market.
The food passport will provide MK residents with information about places, traders and events which promote local food made in and around MK. It also gives customers the opportunity to use discounts and collect loyalty stamps at local businesses.
Events planned as part of the three-month passport validity include beer tastings, a food forum, workshops and a final celebration event at Bradwell Abbey on the 20th February 2016. To see updates about the various events planned by MK Food Revolution, click here.
MK Food Revolution hopes that the passport will encourage shoppers to support their local economy, increase the uptake of healthy food in the area and cut food waste and food miles. Passports are available via a specialist stall at Christmas fairs and farmers markets in the area as well as the initiative’s website.
The local food passports have been funded by MK:Smart, a large collaborative initiative, partly funded by HEFCE (the Higher Education Funding Council for England) and led by The Open University, which will develop innovative solutions to support economic growth in Milton Keynes.
The founder of MK Food Revolution, Franzi Florack, comments:
We are delighted to work with MK:Smart to make a real difference to the food landscape of Milton Keynes. It is important for all of us to understand where food comes from and to support our local growers and makers in their enterprises.
