Local Food Local Schools Research

During the Totnes10 project, we carried out a research project into the feasibility of schools sourcing locally produced food for school meals in the local area.

The aim of this pilot study was to develop a simple survey methodology that would enable a better understanding of food procurement in schools in Totnes and Dartington. In particular we wanted the survey to capture information about where food is currently sourced, what the limitations may be in terms of what can be purchased and whether there was interest and opportunity to source more local food or what the barriers to this might be. This report brings together the findings of the pilot and makes recommendations for future research and action.
