Concern had been raised regarding the impact on already existing schemes however, members were reassured that the food clubs would work complimentary to the existing food clubs. Ideas around healthy eating, recipe cards and growing food to the table were also discussed.


RESOLVED that the setting up of three Food Clubs in the Borough be approved.
