24 Carrot Gold Summit

Middlesbrough Food Summit
26th March 2024
Middlesbrough College

Since Middlesbrough’s first Food Summit – Beyond the Parmo – in 2017, the town became one of a few locations to achieve the Sustainable Food Places Silver Award, and has become a front runner in healthy and sustainable food. Middlesbrough has a thriving good food movement working across the whole food system making good quality, healthy, accessible, and affordable food available to all, and is weaving healthy, sustainable and accessible food into the fabric of the town.

Middlesbrough’s Food Partnership is holding a Food Summit on Tuesday 26th March 2024 to celebrate the amazing projects, initiatives and organisations across the town and what they have achieved. This event will provide replicable best practice, case studies, and a wonderful networking opportunity with amazing people delivering inspirational work.
