1. In respect of a question about food wastage and the use of food banks, Members noted Spitalfields’ work with City Harvest. The Chairman suggested that officers investigate the work that the City Bridge Trust is undertaking in this area and bring a report to the Board.
2. In response to a question about the large number of ‘information-only’ reports on this agenda, Members noted a larger than usual amount of decisions taken between meetings, as set out in the reports at agenda items 11 and 20. The Chairman felt that the new Board should be more strategic in terms of medium and longer term goals but, as its work evolves, it will become involved in more strategic decisions.
