About FoodPioneers

We are a Worthing based non-profit food & nature enterprise working with local, regional and national partners to enrich our community through shared events and experiences.

The day-to-day running of We Are FoodPioneers is managed by Anne, Debs and Louise who are equally passionate about making a positive impact in our own community. Our directors have up to date DBS checks, food safety certificates and a wide range of education, life and work experiences which they bring to the organisation. See below for more information.
