MD1309 GLA Food Economy Programme
MD994 signed in May 2012 confirmed the allocation of funding for the Mayor’s Food Programme for 2012-15 and approved the budget for 2012/13. The MD agreed that following years’ programme would be subject of further approvals.
Since May 2012 the Food Programme has continued successfully to deliver initiatives that support London’s food economy and increase the health and sustainability of food in London. The Programme for 2013/14 has already attracted the commitment of considerable external funding from the Lottery, the Department for Education and from the private sector for projects that will increase greatly the impact of GLA investment. Approval for 2014/15 food programme budget will be the subject of a further MD following the conclusion of GLA budget prioritisation discussions early in 2014.
