Food Assembly movement launches in Brixton

A new scheme connecting Londoners with local foodmakers, farmers and their neighbours has launched in Lambeth.

Billed as a new way to shop, the Brixton Food Assembly offers pre-ordered goods that have been made an average of 28 miles away. The aim is to support smaller food businesses, reduce waste and help the local economy, as for every £1 spent, 90p goes back into the area.

The Food Assembly concept first started in France, where it's known as La Ruche Qui Dit Oui.
