Programme Evaluation

The evaluation report of the Community Food Co-operative Programme has now been published.

The programme aims to increase people’s access to, and consumption of, fresh fruit and vegetables and to support local Welsh suppliers.  The Rural Regeneration Unit manages the programme which is funded by the Welsh Government.  The programme currently supports over 350 food co-ops across Wales and has been funded since 2004.

The evaluation examined take-up and consumption, the effectiveness of the delivery model and the impact of the programme on participants, volunteers, suppliers and the wider community.

The report has been published on the Welsh Government website at http://wales.gov.uk/about/aboutresearch/social/latestresearch/?lang=en
