Support our work with a donation
What will your donation help us do?
All the things we currently do without dedicated funding, or can’t afford to do. While most of our projects are grant-funded, donations make a real difference to our campaigning capacities: organising events with great speakers to learn from good practice abroad (for examples see our calendar), holding stalls or fringe events at party conferences, printing leaflets and reports, giving evidence at the UN… It all costs a lot of money, and makes a big difference. Your donations help us speak up and be heard. This is always the first step towards change.
The Good Food Nation Bill is a unique opportunity for Scotland to adopt world-leading legislation that will give us the tools to make our food system fairer, more democratic, healthier, and more sustainable.
Help us to make sure this opportunity isn’t missed !

Nourish has had some impressive successes in our just 3 years of existence:
* We secured commitment to new food legislation, the Good Food Nation Bill, in three party manifestos and the Scottish Government’s Programme for Government, with consultation beginning in 2017; with the help of civil society partners through the Scottish Food Coalition.
* We gave evidence to a UN Committee in Geneva which led to the very first recommendations on the right to food addressed to the UK, and put Scotland’s soaring food poverty on an international stage.
* We co-authored a vision for food, farming and health in a new Scotland: Plenty, calling for a just transition to better food system; as members of the Scottish Food Coalition
* We are empowering people to take back control of the food system through our Food Leadership programme and Turning the Tables programme, and have a number of Food Justice workshops planned throughout 2016-18.
* In 2015-2016 we supported 24 entrepreneurs to make a living out of local food with our mentoring programme and in 2014 we coached 20+ new or aspiring farmers through our New Farmer Programme.
* We coordinated a Scottish delegation to the 2016 European Food Sovereignty Forum – putting Scotland on a global stage and in a prime position to learn from others.
* We are always listening to producers, most recently in our engagement with the Scottish Government’s consultation on for the Future of Scottish Agriculture.
* We supported a moratorium on growing Genetically Modified crops in Scotland, recognising that knowledge and power over Scotland’s food must always be in the hands of Scotland’s producers.
