The From Farm to Fork project was co-delivered byFeedbackand Foodcycle with delivery taking place from January 2016 to February 2019. From Farm to Fork worked with 16-24 year olds; teaching them about ‘gleaning’ (harvesting surplus food from farms) and supporting them to prepare and serve meals to the community using this produce.
Young people were trained in safe gleaning practices, how to reconnect with farmers and the countryside, and developed working knowledge on sustainable food growing. Through taking part, young people were able to create positive social and environmental change – you can read Farhad’s story here.

Although this project has now ended, Feedback is now creating paid internship opportunities via the Eco Talent project!
