Food Glorious Food – what does a diverse foodscape look like for Doncaster and beyond?

Exciting things are happening in Doncaster and you are invited to participate. 

We are celebrating food and exploring ways in which Doncaster can thrive while creating more democratic foodscapes. Therefore we are delighted to invite you to participate in the first food conference entitled:

Food Glorious Food – what does a diverse foodscape look like for Doncaster and beyond?

to be held at CAST theatre, Doncaster on 13th March 2019.

The aim of the conference is to inspire everyone to make a difference, to shake things up and tackle some of the big food issues that currently need serious attention in Doncaster and beyond.

Good Food Doncaster is supporting this initiative and would love to hear your opinions, ideas, initiatives and suggestions. We are reaching out to innovators, change makers and people on the cutting edge of research and new ideas to come together to forge a different future.  

Speakers include:

Dr. Megan Blake University of Sheffield

Megan Blake's research approach interrogates how social institutions, everyday practices and place produce the possibilities for and constraints on performance of food practices. Her recent and current research is located within two interrelated food focused themes. The first addresses unjust foodscapes, while the second is concerned with food surplus and waste. Her work involves co-producing research knowledge that seeks to build coping, adapting and transformation in vulnerable communities and families through food. Dr. Blake has worked with international, as well as national and locally based organizations in the UK, Hong Kong, and Hungary.
