Along with signing the Good Food Charter to become a member, there are many ways that you can take action with the Shropshire Good Food Partnership.

The Steering Group includes representatives from key sectors of Shropshire’s food system and has the remit of providing leadership for the development of the network. If you are interested in becoming a member of the SGFP Steering Committee, please contact us and include which sector you represent as well as your relevant experience and food system interests.
Join a Working Group
If you would like to join one or more of our working groups, the six focus areas and their leads are:
Healthy Food for All: Sophie Padgett
Nature Connection: Paul Newman

Wise Land Stewardship: Steven “Jake” Jacobs
Waste Reduction: Mark Foxall and Katy Anderson
Sustainable Food Economy: Jenny Rouquette & Beth Heath
Become one of our Good Food Champions
Our Ambassadors spread the word about the work and values of the Partnership across the county. They're essential to building our network of members through the Good Food Charter and helping us make contacts, allowing us to broaden out links and impact across Shropshire's Food System.
Host a Food Assembly
In the lead up to our AGM and World Food Day Celebration on October 15th, 2022, we will be encouraging people across the county to host gatherings in August and September that will feed into the discussions that we have at the main event.
The purpose of these gatherings will be to:
Bring together the many voices of communities across Shropshire so that their visions of a better food system can be shared
Help the SGFP define its priorities over the next 12 months, based on what's important to communities across the county
Identify projects and local champions across Shropshire and see how the Partnership could support their work by making links to funding opportunities
Define issues, actions and desired outcomes that the Partnership could take forward as recommendations to Shropshire Council for a County-Wide Food Strategy
If you would like to host a local food assembly event in your area in the lead-up to our October 15th Celebration, please email email@example.com.
Volunteer at Upcoming Events
Keep an eye on our News/Events page and social media feeds for opportunities to take part.
We hold regular monthly 'Drop in' calls for people who are interested in our work and want to know where they can fit and share their ideas. Details of these calls are posted in advance on social media and on our News/Events page.
Share your News, Events and Successes
Please help us amplify the visibility of Good Food across Shropshire by sharing information of upcoming events, skill-shares, opportunities, and best practices on your farm or food business.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with information and images that you'd like us to share on social media and with our members.
If you would like to be involved in any of these areas please get in touch with our coordinator Daphne at email@example.com.
