The Sustainable Food Cities approach is a tried and tested model for driving positive change based on 3 Ps:

  • Establishing an effective cross-sector Food Partnership

  • Embedding healthy and sustainable food in Policy 

  • Developing and delivering a food strategy and Action Plan

Sustainable Food Cities focus on six key themes:

  1. Promoting healthy and sustainable food to the public.

  2. Tackling food poverty, diet-related ill health and access to healthy food.

  3. Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects.

  4. Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy.

  5. Transforming catering and food procurement.

  6. Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system.
