The charity


We are pleased to announce our merger with Sustainable Food Somerset, fellow local and sustainable food advocates. We will retain the key elements of our work as Somerset Community Food:

We support community food projects in Somerset. This includes:

  • Growing projects such as community gardens
  • Distribution projects such as food co-ops
  • Healthy eating projects such as cookery classes

We provide training. Our Get Set Cook and Get Set Grow training equip people to grow and cook their own food, so people can benefit from access to fresh, nutritious food. We have an experienced team of tutors who facilitate this.

We run community food forums and conferences. Bringing people together to celebrate successes and share good practice and ideas. We share news from the network and send out a 'Incredible Edible Somerset' newsletter several times a year. We now host resources from Incredible Edible Somerset on this website, including information and advice on all aspects of community food and access to land. 

We have run many successful community food projects across the county, working with a variety of partners – please visit our past projects page for examples.
