Going for gold: How are you helping Bristol become a sustainable food city?

fpc-plan-header-2-trial-3_1Did you know that in March this year Bristol was awarded silver in the Sustainable Food Cities awards?

Could you be part of the Action Plan to become gold?

Following this success, we are keen to become the first city in the country to achieve the gold award. If you’d like to join us in this mission, then read on.

To guide the bid, Bristol Food Network and Bristol Food Policy Council are updating and expanding Bristol’s Good Food Action Plan in order to draw out developing areas of excellence in our food system, and also highlight where we have gaps in provision. The action plan is very broad, covering the ten areas of the city’s food system outlined below.

  1. Access & affordability
  2. Health, education, inclusion and engagement
  3. Retail
  4. Community-led trade
  5. Supply and distribution infrastructure
  6. Market opportunities for local, regional and Fairtrade producers
  7. Public and private catering & procurement
  8. Land & planning
  9. Scaling up urban agriculture
  10. Reducing wasted food & food waste

If you have food related plans for 2016 and beyond and want to be part of the action plan and drive Bristol’s future bid forward, please get in contact.

Send an email to matthew4.wilkinson@live.uwe.ac.uk highlighting which of the ten areas above you are working on and you will receive the relevant documents and next steps to get involved. Once you receive the documents it should not take more than 10-15 minutes to fill out and send them back.
