Sustainable Food City Lancaster is a very new initiative led initially by community food growing groups, our first big event was held in May 2013 when we brought together a wide range of public, private, voluntary and community representatives to talk about how Lancaster could develop a city-wide healthy and sustainable food programme. We are currently establishing a cross-sector steering group to drive the programme forward and hope to develop an action plan to transform food culture across the City.
Lancaster has many sustainable food projects including: community orchards in public parks, Food for Life in schools, Single Step - a retail food cooperative - and a range of healthy eating programmes. Transition City Lancaster runs a ‘garden-share’ project, local food festivals and an annual potato day alongside numerous films and talks on sustainable food; and Incredible Edibles are working with community centres to grow food. Sustainable Food City Lancaster aims to better connect these wonderful initiatives and to catalyse new strategic initiatives.
