About This Live Project v.2.1

The Sheffield Food Network is an organisation that promotes and celebrates the growing, sourcing and eating of local food in Sheffield. It serves the people of Sheffield though an online interface, as an online guide to everything and anything to do with sustainable food in Sheffield.

Firstly the Sheffield Food Network links sustainable food outlets, producers and restaurants to the people of Sheffield, but aims to extend this relationship by sharing ideas about growing fruit and vegetables, butchery, baking, local recipes, how to forage for wild food, and much more.

The Sheffield Food Network continues the exchange of information started by Grow Sheffield and Abundance Sheffield with the overall long term aim of creating an open social network, connecting people who have an interest in sharing Sheffield’s sustainable food resources. 

If you have arrived here on a recommendation or through personal interest, we invite you to contribute to the ongoing discussions.

Calculating your carbon "food" print

I thought this was really fun. The site gives you frying pan and photos of various meal options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and any time. You click and drag your choice into the pan, and its carbon food points appear in the right hand column calculating you daily carbon total the way you would calories. A high carbon diet is apparently 4500 points which if eaten every day would release the equivalent of 3 tons of CO2 a year. To make a positive difference, the site advises keeping to 2500 points or lower a day.
