Becoming a Better Food Trader

Growing Communities has learned a huge amount from running a successful community-led box scheme in Hackney for 20 years. We decided we wanted to share that knowledge to help other groups to bring fresh, seasonal food to their communities while supporting local small-scale farmers and creating jobs. So we set up the Start-up Programme, which has so far helped nine groups to get up and running, who are now all members of the Better Food Traders.
