About Real Food Wythenshawe

Real Food Wythenshawe is an ambitious five-year programme to engage and excite the people of Wythenshawe in growing and cooking fresh, sustainable food. It’s an ambitious project that aims to reach people across the whole community, supporting them all to lead healthier, lower carbon lifestyles through the food they grow, cook and eat. It’s all been made possible thanks to a grant of £1 million from the BIG Lottery Fund – Communities Living Sustainably (CLS).

We want to make Wythenshawe an exemplar for how food projects in the 21st Century should be. We’re going to be building and running innovative indoor food growing systems and stimulating discussion around sustainable urban food production, alongside our many community activities. Everything we do will be inclusive, and will have the people of Wythenshawe at its heart.

There are three key areas the project focuses on, which are cooking, growing and learning.

There are five flagship projects planned as part of Real Food Wythenshawe.
