Community gathering to follow at 7pm: Food on the West Coast

The West Coast Economic Development Action Plan has initiated a project that is focused on growing Social Enterprise on the West Coast, with a particular focus on food-based initiatives. Members of the project team from Ākina, Catalyst and the NZ Govt would like to discuss the project, our aims and what we have found out so far. There will be lots of time for questions and discussion, and we would also like to explore ideas such as the community kitchen and challenges like skills/training.
