We couldn’t be prouder of our home city: Bristol has just scooped the top award from the Sustainable Food City Network! Ours is only the second city to be awarded silver status after Brighton and Hove, for pioneering work to promote healthy and sustainable food.
At the moment silver is the top award possible – the gold award is still being developed.
The Sustainable Food Cities Award highlights and celebrates the success of those places taking a joined up, holistic approach to food and that are achieving significant positive change on a range of key food issues.
Entrants are judged around six themes: healthy and sustainable food, food poverty, the local food economy, community activity, public sector food and waste.
Bristol has been working towards making its food system healthier and more resilient for over two decades and collaborative working is at the heart of the city’s success – as we well know. Could there be any more reasons to love this city? Roll on Food Connections!
A huge well done to The Bristol Food Policy Council and Bristol City Council. You can read the full story here.
