We are looking for someone who can work with us on 'being more enterprising', including helping to develop a strategy and facilitating a planning session.

Food poverty has been in the news again this week, focussing on the increase in food bank use in the city, with the number of food banks rising from two to twelve in just a couple of years.

Food banks are an emergency response and are accessed through a referral process (for example from a health visitor or advice worker). They offer support on a time-limited basis and have different target groups (some focus on neighbourhoods, others are only for families of very young children).

To celebrate the third birthday of the community compost scheme and because we like round numbers, we are offering a special prize to the person who signs up to be our 1,000th community compost member. 

The recently launched Happiness: Brighton and Hove's Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy describes the city's approach to improving mental wellbeing and promotes the Five Ways to Wellbeing as a tool to improve mental health.

After three years our current volunteer Treasurer is stepping down, so we are recruiting for a replacement.

This is an opportunity for someone who lives or works in Brighton & Hove to join the Food Partnership Board of Directors
