Food Special Interest Group

The Food Special Interest Group (SIG) has been established as a forum for public health professionals from all sectors to provide support and advocate for the importance of healthy and sustainable food systems within public health practice. In particular, the Food SIG will work to:

  • develop and advocate policies and programmes associated with sustainable and health promoting food systems that support delivery of the FPH strategic plan;
  • act as an expert resource to FPH and its members on knowledge, practice and the development of policies and strategies related to sustainable and health promoting food systems;
  • bring together specialist skills, knowledge and professional competences related to sustainable and health promoting food systems and to support best practice;
  • provide a focal point for FPH members who share a common interest in sustainable and health promoting food systems; provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information related to sustainable food systems.

The Food Special Interest Group reports to the Faculty's Health Improvement Committee. The SIG is lead by co-chairs Kristin Bash: kristin.bash@nhs.net and Amanda Donnelly: ADonnelly@soilassociation.org
