Gloucestershire Community Food Survey

During the Covid pandemic, Food Security was highlighted as a real risk to community members across the county.  As a result the Gloucestershire Food Strategic Partnership would like to ask your help to explore Food Security, Food Access and Food Equality.  

Please tell us about food accessibility in your Parish or Town Council area.  We will use your feedback to help develop a strategy about food and access to it for the county.

Q1Please tell us about your Parish or Town Council:

Food and Farming

We want to support local farmers to grow locally produced food for us, as well as supporting them to adopt healthier farming practices in food production, improving air, water and soil quality, biodiversity recovery, and adopting more natural flood management practices.  All of these actions combined will help support our local economy, creating jobs for our communities.

Q13Do you think your residents would prefer to buy local food produced in this way if it was affordable?
Q14Would your Parish or Town Council like to become more involved in supporting the farming community, either in food production or in helping to reduce environmental impact?
