  1. North Yorkshire Council wants to hear your experiences, so that they can look at how to reduce the amount of food waste and make healthy food more accessible.

    They want people living and working here to be involved – please fill in the Let’s Talk Food survey

    The Let’s Talk Food survey is part of the wider conversation that has been taking place about food in North Yorkshire, looking at the whole food system - from how we grow food, what we grow, to what we buy and eat and how much we throw away

    There are several ways you can take part in Let’s Talk Food:

    You can fill in an online survey here – the survey is on Commonplace, which is a safe and easy-to-use online tool used to engage with communities, by over 250 organisations including neighbouring councils in Leeds and West Yorkshire. 

    If you would prefer, you can pick up a paper copy from your local library, leisure centre or main local office and return it in the envelope provided.

    You can also email [email protected]  or call 0300 131 2 131 (please say ‘Let’s Talk’ when prompted) to request a survey.
