At the end of July 2023, the University of Huddersfield and South Pennines Park hosted the first meeting of the South Pennines Food Circle at Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield. Funded by the University of Huddersfield AHRC Impact Accelerator Programme, the initiative aims to regional foster collaboration, promote locally produced food, and champion sustainable practices that can benefit local communities and regional economies in ways that protect nature. Organised by Dr John Lever from University of Huddersfield and Katherine Bates from South Pennines Park, the event was attended by approximately 25 people from across the region. Gareth Roberts from Regather Cooperative in Sheffield got the event underway with a talk and a Q&A session on his experiences from South Yorkshire, before participants took part in a series of round table discussions and activities on the future direction of the Food Circle.
