How thinking of ourselves differently can change the future of our food system


Join in to learn from, amplify and support the food citizenship movement across the UK.

We believe that we all have the power to make a positive change in our food systems, and that we should all have access to affordable, healthy and sustainable food.

The food citizenship movement is a brilliant collective of people, charities, farmers, producers, retailers, government bodies and more, all working in their own way to empower people as citizens, not consumers.

At its core, Food Citizenship is the important belief that people naturally care about others, about animals and about the planet. However, we need meaningful power to make a difference to sustain and grow that instinct to care. The challenge for organisations is then to nurture that power, and to make it meaningful, creative and joyful to exercise it. This is already happening in big and small ways across so many organisations and in so many places, and growing all the time.


We are resilient, persistent, inclusive, trusting and hopeful. But we are also fired up at the injustices in our food chains and systems that mean that lots of people can’t afford to eat well or participate in their communities.

This must change.

We hope the resources on this site are useful in your work. Please send any blogs, reports, materials or events you’d like us to share with the movement to or on twitter to @ukfoodcitizens

We can use our power to make a difference.

We are food citizens.
