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 Places, led by food and farming charity Sustain in partnership with the wider Peas Please initiative.
