Partnership structure

Steering Group

The Devon Food Partnership brings together key stakeholders from across Devon’s food system into a steering group. The role of the steering group is to inspire, support, and connect action around the county. A wide range of organisations are represented on the steering group:Devon Food Partnership structure showing in order 'steering group', 'local authority sub-group', 'task groups', and 'wider stakeholders'.

The Partnership also includes a local authority sub-group, which includes representatives from Devon’s eight districts and two unitary authorities. Work is underway to establish smaller task groups to focus on specific issues such as dynamic food procurement and food insecurity.

We are always keen to facilitate more joined-up working across different organisations, locations, and groups. So, if you have a project and are looking to link up with other partners, get in touch and we would love to hear about it.
