What’s it about?

Good Food Governance looks at the way we make decisions about our food system, the policies and plans we have in place to support those decisions, and the networks that collaborate to make them. As a city, we need Good Food Governance to make sure that our food system works for people and communities, climate and nature, workers and businesses, not only now, but for generations to come, whatever the future holds.

Read on to find out which actions the Bristol Good Food Partnership are prioritising to support the way we make decisions in the city and the networks that collaborate to make them. By taking an active interest in food in our local communities, or having a say in food planning for the city, we can all play our part.
