Sustainable Food Cities

We belong to a bigger network

Across the globe, communities at every scale have recognised the key role food can play in dealing with some of today’s most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges and are taking a joined up approach to transforming their food culture and food system.

Lincoln is one of those communities, and we are proud to be a network member of Sustainable Food Places.

A Sustainable Food Network

The Sustainable Food Places 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 Sustainable Food Places network helps people and places share challenges, explore practical solutions and develop best practice on key food issues.
