Volunteer Dundee and Project Partners joyfully invite you to attend these food and social tourism related workshops.


We have a plethora of engaging and up to the minute creative approaches to help your SME, Social Enterprise and Community initiative to capture and tell your food story digitally for mass appeal and share in Dundee’s growing food scene.

As part of #FeedMeAStory, there are two amazing opportunities to take part in free storytelling workshops on the 4th of December.
