  • Questions on specific areas cities, councils, partnerships are struggling with e.g. how/whether to encourage citizen involvement in food partnerships; how to measure emissions saved from improved public procurement, how to work most effectively with businesses in a food partnership, etc.

How often can I post?

You can post as often as you like, and remember to invite everyone within your local food partnership to sign up!

Will the forum be moderated?

Yes. The moderator will keep an eye out for posts that violate the forum’s user guidelines. Any such post will be removed by the moderator.

Can I use the forum to communicate with my assigned FoodSHIFT project partner?

No. This forum is not for sharing detailed project work and sensitive documents that relate to specific bilateral or multilateral work streams between FAls and FELs. This is not an internal communication channel to carry out FoodSHIFT related project work.

Can I use this forum as an archive and list/search materials for FoodSHIFT legacy work?

No. This forum does not work as a library of materials. It is not a mini site or a shared drive. When someone posts in the forum, you will receive an email but there is no website or page for you to access to search back for previous posts unless you have saved the emails personally.
