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.
With resources from the Veg Power campaign, Hull Food Partnership is collaborating with Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust to produce recipe cards featuring the ten veg-of-the-week and inspire children to cook and eat vegetables by having fun in the kitchen preparing simple and nutritious dishes.
Brighton and Hove Food Partnership launched a Veg City Challenge to local chefs and caterers to create an innovative grab’n’go recipe packed with veg to satisfy some of the pickiest audiences: teens and young adults. The winning recipe will be championed and trialled at venues and outlets across the city.
The Hull City Council Healthy Lifestyle team have been working in partnership with children’s centres to deliver cookery training with a focus on using fresh vegetables and with Hull Food Partnership and Veg Power UK to spread the love of veg to a much bigger audience in the city.
