Brighton & Hove City Council is actively supporting practical action to develop a healthier, fairer, and more environmentally friendly food system as set out in its Food Strategy and Action Plan. Aims in this plan include to be ‘a city that eats together’ and action to reduce waste and increase composting. The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership takes a crucial role in this by delivering practical projects, providing support to community food groups and developing policy to enable this transition to a more sustainable food system.
The objective of the FSI is to foster a vibrant place-based community food sector through multiple means of food sharing including cooking together, food sharing initiatives that address social isolation, food access and affordability, community composting, redistributing surplus food and creating new products from surplus.
