The Larder is a social enterprise in Preston that aims to tackle food poverty and promote food sustainability through ‘thinking globally, acting locally.’ Through its initiatives, The Larder empowers local communities, enabling food access, educating and providing work in sustainable food. These projects are designed to encourage people to ask questions about where their food comes from and create a demand for more sustainable food systems. In this episode, we talk with Kay Johnson about how The Larder was formed, it’s various projects and how these have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We also look into the benefits of The Larder’s initiatives and other such social enterprises on the local economy, and discuss the role that researchers can play in co-creating research alongside non-academic organisations to produce evidence that is useful in supporting these communities and developing scalable models to replicate their results on the global scale.
