Last month saw the launch of an important resource for Plymouth communities, in the form of the Worrying About Money? leaflet,
Food Plymouth is the city’s recognised Local Food Partnership
A central connecting hub for all food-related matters in Plymouth
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 Food Plymouth partnership and network is facilitated and resourced by Food Plymouth CIC.
The collaborative work of the partnership is expressed through the six strands of our action plan, each of which focuses on transforming a different aspect of our food system. These are illustrated in our symbolic lighthouse diagram and correspond to the six strands of the Sustainable Food Places network, of which Plymouth was a Bronze Award holder member since 2015, before achieving Silver Award in 2023. More about each theme can be found on the Actions page.
Plymouth is is proud to be home to one of over 90 local food partnerships in cities, boroughs and counties across the UK who are part of the network. From 2022-2023, Plymouth was also part of the FoodSHIFT2030 programme, partnering with Copenhagen in an unique peer learning programme.
