North Glasgow Community Food Initiative (NGCFI)
North Glasgow Community Food Initiative (NGCFI) has operated as a non-profit making organisation since June 2001. It was initially established by students from Student Action For Refugees (STAR) at Glasgow University, under the name of the North Glasgow Food Co-op.
It was set up in response to research carried out by the Glasgow Asylum Rights Campaign who had identified a need for the local provision of cheap fresh fruit and vegetables in order to encourage its consumption and a need for projects that were intended for use by the whole community.
In the first year, the project was run entirely by volunteers and in September 2002 the project received funding from Integration Resouces to take on staff to support and develop the activities.
The organisation then changed its name to the 'North Glasgow Community Food Initiative' and broadened its focus to include expanded fruit and vegetable sessions, a delivery service, an allotment project and cookery activities. It has been growing ever since!
Their services now include a Fruit and Vegetable service; Garden project; Cookery work;
Healthy Living Kid`s Club; as well as Outreach work.
