From the organiser:
The Scottish Local Council Election for Glasgow City is due to take place on the 5th May 2022. This Good Food Hustings will be a chance to hear from party representatives on where they stand on key issues such as urban growing and allotments, emergency food provision, and food procurement. After hearing from candidates, attendees will have the chance to ask questions.
With the Glasgow City Food Plan launched in June 2021, this election is key in ensuring that elected councillors will support the implementation of the plan and the Good Food movement more broadly. The Glasgow City Food Plan is a framework to achieve: “a food system in Glasgow that is fair, resilient and environmentally sustainable and enables everyone in Glasgow to eat healthy, affordable, culturally appropriate Good Food irrespective of where they live, their income or personal circumstances.”
Representatives have been invited from the SNP, Scottish Greens, Scottish Labour, Scottish Conservatives, Alba and the Scottish Liberal-Democrats.
Why a 5:30pm start? We are starting the event at 5:30pm in order to be finished by 7pm, so that anyone who is observing Ramadan is able to fully participate.
You can see who the candidates are in all Glasgow wards here.
