From the Kindling Trust’s website
“Foodlink NW were so impressed with what we had been able to do in Manchester with very little money that they are funding two part-time FeedingManchester co-ordinators for the next two years…. The funding will allow us to find even more groups to populate the website’s extensive database of over three hundred entries, encourage more people to attend our FeedingManchester gatherings but crucially promote local and sustainable food to a wider audience.
“One of the workers first tasks will be to re-map the sector and create a sustainable food charter for the City based on our adopted definition of sustainable food. Not only will this allow FeedingManchester to go from strength to strength, but also it puts us at the heart of a regional partnership, enabling local and sustainable food enterprises from across the Northwest to connect to local people.
“If you are interested in working for FeedingManchester, please send your CV and a covering letter explaining why you would like to work with us, to The Kindling Trust by 12 noon on Monday 9th January.“
