See what actions the Bristol Good Food Partnership are prioritising to empower people through access, knowledge and skills to make food choices that are good for health, mental wellbeing, family, nature and animal welfare.
What’s it about?
We may feel like we have a choice about the food we eat, but those choices are deeply connected to what we can afford and access, our skills and knowledge, and what or who is influencing our power to choose. When we can’t choose food that’s good for us, our health suffers. Many foods most associated with poor diets carry a huge environmental impact, leading to loss of biodiversity, high greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation and other factors contributing to the climate and ecological emergencies.
Find out more about the Bristol Good Food Partnership’s priorities to tackle these issues here in the city and check in on the latest progress updates.
All Bristol Good Food 2030 Working Groups aim to take a whole food system approach, meaning that the work considers and takes action on food in many settings, involving key actors at every level. The Skills and Climate Friendly Diets Working Group has identified the priorities below.
Support the Grow, Cook, Eat – Lawrence Weston pilot scheme that will develop a sustainable neighbourhood food plan framework, using a whole community approach.
Work on inclusive, community-driven opportunities for learning about sustainable and healthy diets, and help develop related skills across the city.
Implement an expansion of the Food Leaders programme, a course delivered by a number of partners across the city. Aim to have trained Food Leaders active in every area.
