Full Circle Food

Full Circle Food  is a registered charity that educates people living in South East Northumberland about growing food to eat, healthy cooking on a budget; and adopting a healthier lifestyle. We place community members at the heart of service design and delivery.

The Full Circle Food Project has gained a solid reputation since starting in 2014, with just a couple of staff and a handful of loyal and passionate volunteers.

We have created 2 community gardens, both available to individuals, families and groups. We hold open sessions at these venues for anyone to come along, join in and find out more.

We offer hands on cooking experiences for all ages from families with young children to older people living alone. The emphasis will always be on health, taste, limited budgets and fun. 

We are committed to reducing food poverty and waste.

We are entering an exciting period of growth for the organisation and this is why we are looking to recruit a couple more members to our management committee or to become Trustees to strengthen the existing Board. The Board is responsible for setting the overall strategy of the organisation and for ensuring it meets its charitable objects. As members and directors of the company, our Trustees have oversight of the management and operations of the charity, ensuring that we fulfil our contractual obligations and remain fully compliant with current legislation, embedding and exemplifying best practice in all that we do.

Time Commitment

Trustees are invited to attend an induction session prior to their first Board meeting. The Board meet not less than six times per year and the schedule of meetings is agreed by Trustees in advance for the forthcoming year. Meetings usually last a maximum of 2 hours, and are located in the Ashington area.

Trustees are expected to attend all Board meetings and an additional planning and strategy day held locally once each year.
