The National Food Service is a new public service, built by and for the communities that it serves. Our aim is to eliminate food insecurity and tackle the interconnected issues of social isolation and food waste. We are building a National Food Service right now, with communities across the country stretching from Glasgow to Falmouth. This network of initiatives are providing proof that a National Food Service is possible if we connect. The growth of a grassroots National Food Service will be the seed for bigger change.
If it’s grassroots and voluntary then it’s not a national service in the sense of the NHS now, is it? Might well be more effective than the NHS but that’s another matter.
