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.

If you can eat London, why not eat Sheffield?

'Eat London' was a physical food map of central London, curated by LIFT, who produce interactive cultural experiences which enable people to make meaningful connections on a local, national and international level. Each grid square was made by a marginal community group with food specific to their cultural and ethnic background. The squares were then assembled in Trafalgar Square on Saturday April 27th 2007 to create a food map of London. Then it was eaten! Roads were made of gingerbread, the gherkin from grapes, buildings from cake, Houses of Parliament from cucumber sandwiches, the London Eye from two vertical pizzas. For more photos click here.
