Leeds Food Partnership (LFP) was established by Feed Leeds, Leeds City Council, and food organisations across Leeds to promote a new strategic approach to sustainable, healthy and affordable food in the city. LFP aims to contribute to city priorities to address health inequalities including malnutrition and obesity, reduce food poverty, support local food businesses, and reduce the environmental impact of the production, trade and consumption of food, with a strong emphasis on the reduction of food waste. LFP seeks to work inclusively with all sectors of the local food system, including producers, processors, caterers, retailers, outlets, education and community groups.
Feed Leeds is a network of more than 50 individuals and organisations working in partnership to support local food growing for its social, economic, environmental and health benefits, and to promote healthy, sustainable and affordable food in Leeds. Co-managed projects currently include The Leeds Food Partnership, Leeds Edible Schools Sustainability Network and Leeds Edible Campus.
Leeds is appointing a Food Officer with Sustainable Food Cities and the University of Leeds / N8 Agrifood funding. (Food growing and related activities will continue to reside with Feed Leeds).
A lot is already happening on healthy and sustainable food in Leeds and we have initiated and supported a range of projects including edible flower beds on Council run green space and an edible campus corridor at the University.
