Mission and Vision

Our Vision

To contribute to the development of a society, where health, well- being and harmony are supported within active communities.

Strategic Goal

North Glasgow Community Food Initiative’s Strategic Goal is to empower individuals and communities to lead practical and sustainable food related projects such as nutritional education, healthy cookery classes, growing food and giving access to affordable fruit and vegetables in the local community, that inspire and improve overall health and well- being, promoting community cohesion, whilst celebrating the diverse nature of the communities in North Glasgow.

We believe voluntary action is built on the passion of individuals and communities to make a positive difference


We value and recognise the contribution our volunteers and members make to our service delivery and in influencing the way we do things
