Food Justice Fortnight closing event: celebration Egyptian feast with Bridges for Communities
Ebenezer Church, 286 Filton Avenue, BS7 0BA
Celebrate a fortnight of activities over a shared meal with Bridges for Communities and Feeding Bristol as part of Food Justice Fortnight 2023.
Everyone is welcome to join us for the Food Justice Fortnight closing event, where we’ll eat a delicious Egyptian three-course meal prepared by the wonderful chef Nesrin, a friend of Bridges for Communities
After a fortnight of events and activities across the city, we’ll come together and celebrate the wonderful and diverse food communities in Bristol. We’ll reflect on what we’ve heard, seen and said over Food Justice Fortnight, learn about the work of Bridges for Communities and think about how we move forward as a city to achieve Food Justice for everyone.
What is Food Justice Fortnight?
Food Justice Fortnight is an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful and diverse food communities creating positive change within our city.
Between 26 June and 9 July, Food Justice events will be taking place all over Bristol. There’ll be discussions, activities and many shared meals. Information about all events will be announced on Feeding Bristol’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Why do we need Food Justice?
Food is essential to good health, wellbeing and a thriving society; food is often the glue that holds communities together. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of people who are unable to eat well according to their health and culture – this is Food Inequality, and it is a huge injustice.
Bringing people together over food helps build our resilience, but we need to do more if we want to address the injustice of food inequality in the city. For this reason, we’ve created the One City Food Equality Action Plan and are launching it during Food Justice Fortnight. The Action Plan, which was co-produced by citizens and stakeholders of Bristol, sets out what we need to do over the next three years to start laying the groundwork for food equality in the city.
By connecting over food and collaborating to create community-based solutions, we are participating in Food Justice.
