Food4FamiliesFood4Families is a community-based Reading project for children and their families, which aims to enable them to manage land in their own neighbourhoods for the sustainable growing of food for their own consumption, encourage healthier eating and lifestyle habits and develop understanding of the broader environmental, cultural and economic aspects of sustainable food production.
The Food4Families project gets families growing fruit and vegetables in their local communities. It does this through employing a development worker to engage local families through schools and community groups. Professional horticulturalists then work with them, together as families, to develop community growing plots and in building skills and understanding in food production.
Food4Families is an educational and development project that is sponsored by Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC), who have extensive experience in devising and delivering educational programmes and materials in the formal sector.
