The next RSA Coventry gathering is on Tuesday 13th November and is being led by two FRSAs, Dr Andrew Marsh and Sally Arkley. They're looking at Food Culture.
From Plot to Plate?
Community food initiatives including Community Supported Agriculture (local example Five Acre Farm) and cafés (exemplars include The Pod café, Monash University’s Wholefood Café and Spon End’s Oasis Community Café) provide important roots that reach deep into local need. Food-based initiatives, such as shared-kitchen incubators, which support inclusive enterprise, local food supply chains and healthy eating can be a key driver of community cohesion. What are the opportunities for Coventry? How can we help community enterprises, such as Proof Bakery grow? In an era of feast and famine co-existing, why do many people find food to be too expensive and what are the barriers to accessing healthier food options for those most in need?

Our next meetups will take place on Monday 10th December and Tuesday 15th January.
