Guide to Intergenerational Practice Involving Good Food

The Food for Life Get Togethers team is here to connect generations through good food, thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. We are part of Food for Life, a major programme of the Soil Association, one of the UKs largest food and farming charities. At Food for Life we champion good for all. This means a healthy, thriving population which buys, grows, cooks and eats good food. We’ll achieve this by making good food the easy choice for everyone, whoever and wherever they are.
