Description of the Initiative (in less than 10 lines), including, as appropriate elements on size and
scale of the initiative:
Sustainable Food Cities supports towns and cities to develop cross sector
partnerships - involving local governments, public agencies, businesses,
NGOs and community organisations – that work together to make healthy and
sustainable food a defining characteristic of where they live. The programme
transforms food culture and the food system that supports it by working on
all key aspects of food health, economy and sustainability simultaneously at
a local level. The Sustainable Food Cities Network - sustainablefoodcities.org
- facilitates learning and exchange of best practice amongst members. In less
than 3 years, the number of places taking this approach in the UK and
becoming active members of the Network has grown from 4 to 40.
Results:
Insufficient space here to include outputs and outcomes of the programme,
as they are too numerous and differ from place to place.
