That is just what the Scottish Food Coalition would like to see for our current food system. This coalition is supported by organisations from across the environmental, health, social justice and farming sectors including the RSPB,  and is challenging the thinking on a range of interconnected issues related to food - including an increasing reliance on food banks, dietary-related health issues and the decline of many of our much-loved farmland specialist species.
