Bwyd Sir Gâr Food
Empowering communities through a co-productive approach, Bwyd Sir Gâr Food’s vision is to enable social, cultural, environmental, and economic regeneration. It aims to work in a culturally sensitive, forward-thinking and inclusive manner through education, communication, and access to opportunity, for the promotion of a thriving, resilient and nutritious local food system supportive of nature recovery, as well as health and wellbeing. The partnership is supported by Carmarthenshire County Council, Carmarthenshire Association of Voluntary Services, Hywel Dda Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Public Health Wales, Carmarthenshire Public Services Board and Carmarthenshire Food Network (CFN).
Bwyd Sir Gâr Food works closely with members of CFN to provide a platform for grassroots operators in the food system to shape the future of food in the county. CFN is comprised of cluster groups which include community growers, horticultural businesses and farmers, chefs championing local food, community food providers and wider community support organisations. CFN facilitates work within and between the cluster groups, providing opportunities for skills and resource sharing, training opportunities, and working towards a connected food system across the county.
Having become SFP members in Spring 2022, this is the beginning of a very exciting journey to make Carmarthenshire sustainable by ensuring equitable access to healthy, high quality local food.
