In and around Bridport there is plenty of local food including fruit, vegetables, dairy and meat. Bridport has a thriving high street with markets and cafes selling fresh foods. This makes Bridport different from many towns and cities throughout the UK!
Could YOU be part of the NuFEAST project by joining a discussion on the local food scene and how your food choices affect your health and the health of the planet? 4 day time and evening discussion groups wil be held in different venues in Bridport during the week commencing July 18th.
Nutritional well-being means more than just getting the right amount of nutrients – it includes being happy with the food available, trusting the source of food, knowing how to produce culturally appropriate and healthy meals and feeling confident that food is contributing to personal and family well-being. Plus that eating habits do not compromise the long-term well-being of other people, animals or the environment.
Identifying how and when people experience nutritional well-being and what role growing food at home can have in this will contribute towards future directions in nutrition education and in policy development relating to both public health and local, sustainable agriculture.
What to expect: meet people, chat about food for about 90 minutes over a cup of tea and some delicious local cake! And in return for your valuable time we are offering a Spend a Tenner Locally voucher to spend at participating local food businesses. You must be living in or around Bridport and at least 18 years old to take part.
