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.
Calling all local food and health organisations and professionals: please share your experiences supporting families on low incomes with no recourse to public funds to access healthy food, including the Healthy Start Scheme. Survey deadline 13 October.
Researchers at Sheffield University have demonstrated that people who grow fruit and vegetables at home eat more fruit and veg and reduce food waste.
A new report, 'The Value of Veg in Eastbourne: Recommendations from Eastbourne communities for better food futures' has been published by Eastbourne Food Partnership, and made it all the way to their local MP.
