What is VEG CITIES?
We call on cities and other local areas to coordinate activity and action. From councils to schools, from food growing enterprises to workplaces, we all have a role to play to increase the availability and consumption of vegetables locally.
VEG CITIES is a feature campaign of Sustainable Food Cities, led by food and farming charity Sustain in partnership with the wider Peas Please initiative.

The Lord Mayor of Hull Councillor Steve Wilson hosted a luncheon at Hull’s Guildhall titled a ‘Celebration of vegetables’ with most ingredients grown within a few miles of the city centre.
