NGCFI had a very successful AGM on 15th November, held in the Balgrayhill Community Centre, Springburn. Over 50 attended. A short video of all the work we do across our three food hubs was shown. Our new annual report, available on the web site, goes into more detail of what we have achieved, including feedback from our volunteers and service users. Three new Board members were elected.
A few changes to our charitable purposes were agreed unanimously, including addressing poverty including by ‘promoting and taking action to address food justice and food insecurity’ and adding a new purpose ‘The advancement of environmental protection or improvement’.
Our guest speaker was Abi Mordin from Glasgow Community Food Network and the Glasgow Food Policy Partnership. Abi outlined the work underway to produce a ‘Glasgow City Food Plan’ building on the Glasgow food summit held in May 2019 attended by people working in food all over the city. The Plan will lay out how we will work towards a more sustainable food system. i.e. incorporating environmental, health, social and economic concerns
