WHO WE ARE -
We   are   a   group   of   committed   individuals,   growers,   suppliers,   cooks   and academics,    working    together    with    local    organisations    and    with    city council   support,   who   are   focused   on   one   principle   –   how   to   maximise the   potential   in   York   for   local   and   sustainable   food,   whilst   remaining mindful   of   the   interactions   with   all   the   other   principles   such   as   low carbon, food poverty and zero waste.

We   are   part   of   One   Planet   York,   which   is   a   growing   network   or   organisations   working   to   make   York   a   more sustainable,   resilient   and   collaborative   city.   One   Planet   York   aims   to   create   a   more   sustainable   and   resilient   'One Planet'   city   with   a   thriving   local   economy,   strong   communities   and   a   sustainable   way   of   life;   a   city   where   our residents are healthy, happy and prosperous. The ‘One Planet’ goals are: 1. Health and happiness 2. Equity and local economy 3. Culture and heritage 4. Land use and wildlife 5. Sustainable water 6. Local and sustainable food 7. Sustainable materials 8. Sustainable transport 9. Zero carbon 10. Zero waste
From   obesity   and   diet-related   ill-health   to   food   poverty   and   waste,   climate   change   and   biodiversity   loss   to declining   prosperity   and   social   dislocation,   food   is   not   only   at   the   heart   of   some   of   our   greatest   problems but   is   also   a   vital   part   of   the   solution.The   Sustainable   Food   Cities   approach   involves   developing   a   cross- sector    partnership    of    local    public    agencies,    businesses,    academics    and    NGOs    committed    to    working together   to   make   healthy   and   sustainable   food   a   defining   characteristic   of   where   they   live.   The   Network helps   people   and   places   share   challenges,   explore   practical   solutions   and   develop   best   practice   on   key   food issues.
