WHO WE ARE

Good Food Greater Manchester is a network of interested and experienced people who represent organisations, issues and areas of expertise across all sectors in food. Together we represent a holistic approach towards a “good food” future.​

WHAT WE DO

Good Food Greater Manchester exists to imagine and drive a holistic good food future for everyone in our city region. A “good food future" brings together theory, policy and best practice around the issues of food sustainability, food security, health and accessibility, a thriving and positive food economy, food citizenship and food democracy, and equality and participation in our food system. Good Food GM aims to work with organisations, groups and individuals across the city-region to make the vision for good food a reality. 

HOW WE WORK

Good Food Greater Manchester are working to.....

  • Develop a vision for “good food” in Greater Manchester that brings together the threads of food sustainability, food security, health and accessibility, a thriving and positive food economy, food citizenship and food democracy, and equality and participation in our food system and much more.

  • Use this clear vision document as a vehicle to engage and influence policy makers to set clear targets towards our good food future. 

  • Work with a much wider range of stakeholders to embed good food policy in a way that supports practical action. 

  • Act as an influencing body in areas where a stronger focus on food issues can lead to better policy or action - facilitate, coordinate and support groups across Greater Manchester to champion good food. 

  • Analyse workstreams that are established, owned and making progress and influence as needed. Analyse gaps and consider leading on new workstreams where needed. 

  • Set up subject / issue based sub-groups to drive practical action on specific food issues. 

  • Assess the landscape of food issues and make informed decisions about how the group can achieve the most good and maximise impact, given resources and reach. 

  • Build a good food movement for a range of stakeholders. Inspire others to action. 

  • Support locality action by assessing what can best be driven forward at the city-region level.
