Freelance Project Coordination - Picking and Processing

July to October 2023

11 days at £150 / Day

The Herefordshire Food Alliance are a network of individuals and organisations from across the county involved in local, community and sustainable food action.

Members of the alliance have agreed that we are all working towards the following vision:

Herefordshire has a thriving, healthy and environmentally benign local food economy, where those on low incomes and in rural areas have access to affordable, healthy food; where food production, processing and distribution systems contribute to landscape and wildlife diversity, minimise waste and consider the impacts of climate change; and where local communities are actively engaged in healthy living and have an increased understanding of the links between food and personal and planetary well-being.

Projects taken on by the Alliance work towards this agreed vision - they also work towards building the connections towards that vision.  More of what is happening in Herefordshire can be seen on our blog.

We’re looking for someone comfortable making connections in Ledbury and across Herefordshire connecting community groups, food producers and those using surplus fresh food - to support and build the community action to manage and use surplus fresh produce.
