Being a Veg Advocate for County Durham
As a nation we still don’t produce, sell and eat enough vegetables, but just telling people to eat more clearly doesn’t work. Through the Peas Please initiative and working together with all players in the food system we hope to make the changes needed to get us to eat more vegetables.
Food Durham, the County Durham Food Partnership and the Food Foundation, working together on Peas Please, are looking for a few people to become Veg Advocates for County Durham. This 2 hr workshop led by Dr Amber Wheeler of the Food Foundation will allow you to find out what the initiative is about and what is involved in becoming a Veg Advocate.
The workshop will cover:
- What Veg Advocates are expected to do
- How the information they gather will be used to influence the policies of food companies and retailers
- How much time will be involved and over what period.
