An inaugural food network event was recently held in Ruthin to discuss a new partnership aiming to deliver food related projects around Denbighshire.

COGOG is a multi-agency partnership, working collaboratively to reduce food waste and food poverty in the County through developing sustainable food initiatives.

More than 40 members from various community groups across the county gathered at the Naylor Leyland Centre, to consider how Denbighshire can maximise access to healthy and affordable food and reduce food waste.

Members from the NHS dietetics team and FareShare were present to provide advice, whilst Use Your Loaf, a community bakery based in Rhyl provided freshly baked crusty rolls and focaccia bread for attendees.

Tom Barham, Chair of the Food Partnership said: “We’re very lucky to have so many volunteer groups dedicating their time to address food poverty and promote healthy eating in their local communities, through initiatives such as family cooking sessions, and we look forward to the Partnership being able to support ongoing collaborations through shared learning and cooperative development.”
