Part Two
How community ood initiatives are fnding outabout the impact o cookery courses 
page 2
 Community Food and Health (Scotland) or CFHS aims to ensure that everyone in Scotland hasthe opportunity, ability and condence to access a healthy and acceptable diet for themselves,their families and their communities. We do this by supporting work with and within low-incomecommunities that addresses health inequalities and barriers to healthy and affordable food.Barriers being addressed by community-based initiatives are:
– increasing access to fruit and vegetables of an acceptable quality and cost
– tackling not only the cost of shopping but also getting to the shops
– improving condence and skills in cooking and shopping
– overcoming ingrained habitsThrough our work we aim to support communities to:Identify barriers to a healthy balanced dietDevelop local responses to addressing these barriers, andHighlight where actions at other levels, or in other sectors are required.We value the experience, understanding, skills and knowledge within Scotland’s community foodinitiatives and their unique contribution to developing and delivering policy and practice at alllevels.
