We are here to make Bradford’s food system healthier and more sustainable.
The partnership was established in September 2022. Our role is to provide the operational direction of the ‘Good Food’ strategy, and to bring together key district partners to operate as a ‘Whole System’ to help influence and shape a healthier and more sustainable food system. We are a member of the national ‘Sustainable Food Places’ network.
The Bradford District Good Food Strategy has been developed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change emergency and rising cost of living. This has highlighted a deepened range of inequalities, including those around the cost and the supply of healthy sustainable food. The strategy sets out our vision for the future of how we produce, consume, and dispose of food across the district.
To put accessible and nutritious food for all at the heart of Bradford’s policies and actions. We do this in order to reduce health and social inequalities, to improve health and wellbeing and to create a secure and sustainable food system that works for people and strengthens our local economy.
