James commented on Navigating Food Deserts

Having lived in multiple cities, I can defintely say that the environments I lived in and access to healthy food has played a massive influence on my diet and health at any given time.

James commented on Dining Clubs

As above, mentioned the use of a noticeboard that would perform like http://meetup.com which is merely an internet reference. Wasn't suggesting that this would be an internet-based idea, but one with a noticeboard, markers and paper.

James commented on Dining Clubs

if we take the amount of food available to refugees as unchanged, but simply
i) people can eat the existing amount of food given in isolation
ii) people can eat the existing amount of food given in disorganised groups
iii) people can eat the existing amount of food given in organised groups
iv) people can eat the existing amount of food given in organised groups with infrastructural support to amplify groups interested in learning.

This idea is a proposal of how to organise and opererate option iv) or rather to promote, encourage and assist the self-organisation of option iv).
