Interrogating the nature of foodscapes and alternative food-economies through alternative food spaces

Grantham Scholar Ollie Chesworth researches what role places like community kitchens play in the local area in relation to healthy and affordable food. 

The project

This research aims to consider how alternative food spaces (AFS), such as community kitchens and food partnerships, contribute to local foodscapes for communities where access to healthy and affordable food is limited.

This project will advance understandings of both foodscapes, and alternative economies through AFS’s consumers and service providers. I am interrogating how alternative foodscapes are shaped and revealed by AFS and alternative economies, how AFS fit into traditional foodscapes and which key practices surrounding AFS are ‘alternative’.
