Good Food York header
York has now become a Sustainable Food City and has been registered as a member of the national Sustainable Food Cities Network.
We want York to be a city where it is easy to acquire fresh, locally produced, environmentally sustainable food a city where there is no need to worry about how much your food has contributed to global warming, deforestation or greenhouse gas emissions. We want the food we eat to help sustain local food producers and help develop a varied, reliable local economy. Here at good Food York we’re working to make this happen we want to support individuals to buy more food from local independent growers and sellers, grow their own food at home or in community allotments, to prepare fresh, healthy meals and to waste as little food as possible. We want to help businesses and organisations to procure healthy, sustainable food that helps strengthen the local economy: in turn, we’d like these local enterprises to help and enable the local community to come together to grow, cook and celebrate healthy food.
Good Food York officially launched at the Friends Meeting House in York on 12th November with Grow The Movement. The event was a sell-out, with participants from a huge range of backgrounds, united by their desire to help evolve and grow the food environment in York and North Yorkshire. Here’s a selection of photos of our keynote speakers -
