Good Food Oxford currently has two part-time staff members and several consultants.
Hannah Fenton – GFO Manager
Nina Osswald – GFO Network & Projects Coordinator
If you’d like to get in touch with us, please email Nina.
Here are some words of introduction from Hannah and Nina:
Hannah enjoys food, sometimes more than three times a day. She recommends making kale and pear smoothies, locally abundant and seasonal at the moment (and good enough for Beyoncé!). She’s a Committee Member for East Oxford Farmers’ Market, and is committed to thriving local communities. She takes an asset-based approach, where everyone has something to offer and everyone has something they need. Hannah F has previously worked in conferencing, arts sponsorship and professional development, and event manages the Oxford Real Farming Conference. She knows something of what it takes to bring good, local food into a commercial catering establishment. She likes bringing people together over food, especially if it would otherwise go in the bin. Food waste be gone! She lives with her fiancé Rupert who has an apple juice business.
Nina has been chewing on sustainable food systems from all possible angles over the past ten years: Trained as a Development Geographer at the University of Freiburg in Germany, she has worked as a researcher studying the emerging Indian market for organic food from Hyderabad in South India, as a cookery instructor teaching local, organic and plant-based cuisine, as a recipe blogger, occasional retreat chef for yoga and meditation retreats, and as an aspiring permaculture designer. Nina is a passionate cyclist in all weathers, and in addition to cooking she loves gardening and foraging for wild greens and edible flowers.
