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.
Feeding Our Future takes a look at the UK’s school food system, picking out examples of good practice, identifying opportunities for positive change, and making recommendations for policy and decision makers.
Sustain and food, farming, dental health organisations and campaigners, have written to ministers calling for urgent clarification on the status of the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme after Government failed to sign off the scheme for the new academic year.
Grimes Dyke Primary School in Leeds becomes the 500th participant in the Veg Cities campaign and pledges to grow food in the school allotment and expand the use of the vegetables in the school kitchen.
