Sustainable Food Places- Buckinghamshire

Sustainable Food Places (previously Sustainable Food Cities) is about changing places through food. From obesity and diet-related ill-health to food poverty and waste, climate change and biodiversity loss to declining prosperity and social dislocation, food is not only at the heart of some of our greatest problems but is also a vital part of the solution. Buckinghamshire Food Partnership is currently a member of Sustainable Food Places and working towards the Bronze Award, as one of the flagship countywide Sustainable Food Places.
