Social Innovation in Community Food and Community Energy: The Feeding Tariff
Keywords:community food , commmunity energy , social economy, circular economy, cross subsidisation, food
The Feeding Tariff social innovation project creates a local circular economy whereby a 20-year income stream, generated by community renewable energy projects, is gifted to a range of community food projects to allow them to pursue nonmarket goals (food poverty, food health, mental health, food waste reduction, dietary education) with long-term revenue security, which allows strategic planning. This provides benefits in both community and environmental terms by working with systems rather than sectors. The innovation can be replicated anywhere and at many different scales.
