We’ll be launching Veg Facts 2020, a Food Foundation briefing on veg consumption and production in the UK highlighting the current state of play and what needs to change. 

Our Peas Please Project Team will also be on hand running a drop-in Peas Please Surgery to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming reporting cycle or the initiative more generally.
