Food&More is a European education programme designed by four organisations: Tudatos Vásárlók Egyesülete (Hungary) –co-ordinator, Asociace AMPI (Czechia), Fundacja EkoRozwoju (Poland) and URGENCI International Network. Our aim is to support food citizens, those conscious consumers who do more than just buy their food –they support small-scale food producers, organise food communities and support our organisations. One of the key elements of our project was “The Food&More training” programme. This is a modular training programme,and it aims to teach how to build stronger food communities by using practical methodologies for participatory decision-making and planning, community-based communication,and co-operation.
The 3-module training programme was tested in Hungary, Czechia,and Poland. This training guide summarises the best methods from these three countries. All the Food&More tools and materials are available on URGENCI’s website. We also developed communication materials, short films, presentations for food citizens, useful guides for food community organisers, and tested an on-line course.
