Good Food in Action: Community Skills Sharing in Sauchie

Dec 11, 2023

The Clacks Good Food Charter has a vision where Food in Clacks is
Good for Community: Where knowledge, skills and resources around Good Food are shared through greater cooperation

Sauchie Active8, a local community group with nearly two decades of service, embodies cooperation and knowledge-sharing around Good Food.

Gaining charitable status in 2017, their dedicated team of volunteers is committed to improving the lives of community members through lifelong learning.

During the pandemic, Sauchie Active 8 became a vital support system for local families.

In collaboration with NHS Forth Valley, they provided essential weekly meal packs and offered cooking classes, ensuring that vulnerable residents had access to quality food and the skills to transform ingredients into a healthy meal at home.

The organisation’s involvement with the community extends beyond the kitchen. Sauchie Active 8 also promotes group gardening activities and encourages growing at home. With children actively participating in gardening workshops, planting and caring for gardens.

The project aligns with the Charter’s mission to encourage sharing knowledge, skills, and resources related to good food, fostering cooperation and community
