Feed Leeds is a network, so does not typically create or manage growing projects itself, though the committee aim to help when asked. Growing and other projects are run by our partners, aka Connections, who we ask to display our logo alongside their own. We work with other groups in 5 ways. See the Feed Leeds Constitution for a full explanation
1 Our Connections / Partners ARE Feed Leeds. They contribute to the Advisory Group and Committee, and generally help each other to deliver Feed Leeds’ Aims and Objectives. Please email if you would like to become one. All members of the Feed Leeds committee are also members or one or more Connections.
2 Feed Leeds Internal Projects are wholly managed by the Feed Leeds committee and are mainly concerned with sharing advice, and maintaining and building the network
3 ‘Co-Managed’ Projects are managed jointly by Feed Leeds and one or more Connections, using a bespoke agreement to allow Connections to apply for funds and/or obtain other benefits by using the Feed Leeds constitution, bank account, goodwill etc.
4 ‘Associated’ Projects are fully independent of Feed Leeds, but we have either an historic or a continuing close relationship and deliver advice, support and/or resources (including funding if it can be delivered without the adoption of a co-management agreement) if asked. A number of Connections are currently considering adopting Associated status, and Leeds Food Partnership / FoodWise Leeds, in becoming independent of Feeds Leeds, has now assumed this status
KIF was our name for what is now
Kirkstall Valley Farm
5 ‘Aligned’ Projects generally share Feed Leeds’ aims and objectives, but we have no direct relationship with them.
