From the charter:

Good food is vital to the quality of people’s lives in Bristol. As well as being tasty, healthy and affordable, the food we eat should be good for nature, good for workers, good for local businesses and good for animal welfare.

Building on Bristol’s rich food history and culture, this Bristol good food charter is designed to celebrate good food and to bring individuals and institutions together to increase the demand and supply of fresh, seasonal, local and organic food throughout the city.

If you believe that everyone should be able to enjoy good food, sign up to the principles in this Charter and commit to doing one thing to help make it happen.
