The Belfast Food Network is a founding member of the UK/Ireland Sustainable Food Cities movement. It works with organisations that have an interest in helping people throughout our city to share challenges, explore practical solutions and develop best practice of key food issues.

  • Promoting healthy and sustainable food to the public
  • Tackling food poverty, diet–related ill–health and access to affordable, healthy food
  • Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects
  • Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy
  • Transforming catering and food procurement
  • Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system

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.

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. Belfast secured a Bronze Sustainable Food Cities award in March 2016.
