Friends of the Earth aims to create a team of food champions who are living in areas that can be considered food deserts. These food champions would speak to local communities using surveys and forums in order to identify the food-related problems they face, and together find solutions to tackle these issues. The team wants to train up the food champions to have an active role in their communities to bring people together, co-ordinate the food hubs, facilitate cooking demo and put on mass participation food preparation events. Part of the project will require drawing a community asset map. It will also involve local producers, farmers, allotments and community gardeners, to identify their needs and issues while encouraging them to become earlier adopters of the free online software and to see how it benefits producers all over the world.
