Description

The Food Assembly is a new retail model which enables direct trade between local farmers and their local communities. Members (customers) shop online and then collect their food directly from the people who make it a local weekly Assembly. This new way of buying food brings back power to both local producers and communities. The first Food Assembly took place in France in 2011 and there are now over 500 across France, Belgium, Spain, Germany and the UK. The Hackney Wick Food Assembly launched on 15th July, has over local 1000 members (customers) and takes place at No 90 Bar and Kitchen in Hackney Wick every Tuesday from 6-8pm. You can order local food online at the website www.foodassembly.com and pick it up at an assembly near you.
