The Sustainable Food Cities approach involves developing a cross-sector partnership of local public agencies, businesses, academics and NGOs committed to working together to make healthy and sustainable food a defining characteristic of where they live.
The Network helps people and places share challenges, explore practical solutions and develop best practice on key food issues. Some fabulous examples of how the approach has been applied in Hull, Belfast, Brighton and Hove, Carderdale, Newcastle, and others!

What we love about it:
Using food to bring everyone together to improve their communities, and creating a local network of like-minded citizens and organisations!
Do check out what the Sustainable Food Places movement looks like across UK regions:
- Brighton and Hove Food Partnership had 600 people participating in their initial year-long consultation.
- Hull Food Partnership and its Food Charter.
- Belfast Food Network
