Partners from across Food Cardiff’s network came together for a Peas Please Veg event at the Royal Welsh to debate the opportunities for the Veg supply chain. We were delighted that the Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs took time out of her busy schedule to support the Peas Please initiative.
She began by highlighting the key statistics – only 24% of adults in Wales reported eating 5 portions of fruit and veg on the previous day and a staggering 8% of adults ate no fruit or Veg.
Lesley Griffiths AM congratulated Food Cardiff on its success with its “excellent and award winning programme”, Food and Fun whilst other work such as the Nutrition Skills for Life programme was recognised for its contribution to promoting healthy eating and developing sjills in communities across Wales.
She also mentioned the importance of Wrap Cymru in helping to drive down food waste and looke forward to the work of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens with Tyfu Fyny.
The next step is securing commitments from stakeholders in the Welsh Veg supply chain as we move towards our pledging summit on 24th October
