GOOD FOOD IS EVERYONE'S BUSINESS

A good food movement promotes, supports and sustains inclusive citizen-led action around good food. This is at the heart of everything we do, ensuring everyone has the right to choose good food no matter who they are.


The problem we have within our local food system is that choice doesn't exist or if it does its can be limited, not locally sourced, chemical free or healthy.

We are all connected by food, everyone needs to eat and everyone has the right to choice however sadly we know this isn't the case for everyone. We see our campaign as a social justice campaign ensuring fair access and equal enjoyment to good food.


One of the large pieces of work we are currently designing is a cross-district community consultation. Working in collaboration we will be rolling out opportunities to engage within our communities to ask them what good food means to them and what barriers, if any, stop them from accessing and enjoying it.


Using this insight will allow us as a movement to amplify community voices and advocate for change within our food system. What does this look like in practice? Our outwardly facing campaign will look to inspire and engage our citizens about good food.


We will conduct the following:


  • We will be using all our communication channels to direct people to answer a short survey hosted by Feeding Gloucestershire.

  • A local media campaign encouraging individuals, organisations and businesses to pledge to our charter and direct them to the survey.

  • Hosted opportunities for learning about, sharing and enjoying good food, such as events, workshops, festivals and community meals.

  • Facilitated workshops and food focus group discussions about good food.

We hope to launch this community consultation this year and would love to hear from you if you would like to be involved, whether as an individual, organisation or business. Do you have an event you would like us to attend? Could we attend your organisation to survey your staff or customers? Would you like to get involved in community food action?
