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.

Our purpose is to collectively support the movement for sustainable food in Lancashire and mobilise action against the following six goals of the Sustainable Food Lancashire Charter:

  • Goal 1: Promoting healthier and sustainable food to the public
  • Goal 2: Tackling food poverty and increasing access to affordable healthier food
  • Goal 3: Building community food knowledge, skills resources and projects
  • Goal 4: Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy
  • Goal 5: Transforming catering and food procurement
  • Goal 6: Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system

The Charter and its goals were developed from workshops across 2014 and launched in March 2015. Our Charter was developed with input from over 300 individuals whose work relates to food and food issues in Lancashire, with a view to agreeing a collective set of goals and bringing key people and groups together to work on specific themes and in specific geographical areas.

Lancashire is alive with all sorts of fresh food and food ideas. From supermarkets to allotments, from local suppliers to local markets – there are loads of places to get delicious, tasty and healthy food from in Lancashire and we’ll show you where.

We also provide bespoke and accredited food related training programmes and workshops at a range of levels. We also offer lectures, presentations and advice on a range of food related issues.
