What is Food Vision?
Food Vision started in 2000 as a project to promote local initiatives that increase access to safe, sustainable and nutritious food and so improve community health and wellbeing.
What are Food Visions aims?
The Food Vision website acts as an information portal for local authorities, health professionals, community groups and others interested in food and health.
It aims to promote the good work being done on healthy food initiatives and raise the profile of the contribution of various local authority services to the food agenda.
It also provides useful case studies and guidance enabling organisations to save time and resources by following successful models and learning from others.
Who supports Food Vision?
Food Vision is a project run the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health. It was conceived, and run, initially by LG regulation (part of the Local Government Group) and the Food Standards Agency. Both these bodies made the project possible and ensured it was supported excellently in its first ten years.
Now owned by the CIEH, the project focuses on the key objectives of the charity, reducing health inequalities and safer food.If you have any queries about the website or Food Vision in general, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Does Food Vision have funding for projects?
Food Vision does not have funds to give to specific projects but will highlight funding opportunities from others as they arise; in addition there is some Food Vision generic funding guidance.
