HART helps develop ‘The Feeding Tariff’ Project 

The Feeding Tariff is a partnership between the University, Green Futures, the Lincoln Food Partnership, Grimsby Community Energy, and Community Assets Plus, which generates income from sustainable renewable energy solar panel installations to provide revenue streams continuously over 20 years for:

  • a sustainable local food-growing project (and organic box scheme) that also improves physical and mental health;
  • redistributing ‘waste’ food to those in food poverty;
  • creating learning programmes of positive, food, community and climate action for permanent behaviour change;
  • developing a replicable, community, circular economy model that can be self-financed.

HART members are involved in coordinating the project, and the University has agreed to host the first of the solar panels in this project. A copy of our brochure can be found here: The Feeding Tariff
