Food Plymouth is the City’s recognised Local Food Partnership

A ‘central connecting hub’ for all food-related matters in the City.

Our multi-sector award winning partnership, founded in 2010, comprises a diverse mix of agencies, organisations, businesses, community groups and individual citizens, all working together to actively promote and lobby for healthy, sustainable and affordable food as a driver for positive change.

The collaborative work of the Food Plymouth partnership is expressed through the six strands of our action plan, each of which focuses on transforming a different aspect of our food system. The six themes are illustrated in our symbolic lighthouse diagram, detail for each theme can be found on the Actions page.
