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

A consumerist world is all about ME, ME, ME. Let's change that and embrace a food citizen world instead - very much about the WE. How? Look at this thread, including our new #FoodCitizenship Toolkit. Join in, try out the actions and let us know which ones work best. Enjoy!
The #foodcitizenship toolkit is full of practical actions we all can try out inspired by & featuring some of the pioneers we've been celebrating all week including (but not limited to!) @prestoncouncil , @Riverford , @be_enriched , @IncEdNetwork , @ParticipatoryC, @ORFC 💪
