Browse our key reports and toolkits to understand and grow the food citizenship movement

Food citizenship is a movement of organisations working across the UK food and farming sector that believe in treating people as citizens, not consumers.

As food citizens, we believe in the power of people. We want to and can have a positive influence on food and farming systems. We know that we express more of our selves as citizens than we do as consumers. When given that opportunity, we feel empowered to create positive change in and for our community. We act in keeping with our values and include other people. We want to do the right thing for society to thrive now and in the future. We are resilient, persistent, inclusive, trusting, hopeful.

This website is a hub for the food citizenship movement. It is a space to share tools, approaches and experiences to support larger a shift to the food citizen mindset. It is run by the Food Ethics Council

TAC: "The working group acknowledged that, as people, we think and act differently as citizens than we do as shoppers. Citizens consider issues of broader public interest whereas, as shoppers, we make purchasing decisions based on a narrower range of factors." #foodcitizenship

While much of the language in the TAC report is therefore unsurprisingly about 'consumers' and their interests, we're encouraged by SOME of the language in there and by the reference to our work on #foodcitizenship https://t.co/8k2yfQxOle
