Exploring the role of short local supply chains & community wealth building approaches in social enterprise for sustainable food systems.
In this session we’ll discuss the role of Social Enterprise in creating a sustainable food system with Fiona Steel from Good Food Oxfordshire and members of the OX4 Food Crew.

Social enterprises have a real role to play in fixing our food systems which are currently failing to address the challenges of cost of living, climate, health and food supply issues. By re-localising our food systems, and connecting them to our communities we can meet communities needs and create local jobs for local people with fair wages.

At the June Sustainability Café, we will explore the role of short local supply chains and community wealth building approaches to social enterprise. We will see examples of how different models have worked across the UK, and hear from some of Oxfordshire’s food social enterprises to better understand their ambitions and challenges.
