7 Network members succeed in SUGAR SMART Grants Round 2 & Bristol Water joins campaign

23 June 2017

SUGAR SMART is Sustainable Food Cities' focus campaign for the next year in partnership with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. We are pleased to have been able to award 7 grants of £5,000 to SFC Network members in this second and final round of SUGAR SMART grants aimed at supporting places to take part in our annual campaign to reduce sugar consumption. This brings the total number of SUGAR SMART grant winners to 16.

We will be sharing with you news from the campaign as it gathers momentum and succeeds to raise awareness and tackle sugar overconsumption in an increasing number of towns and cities across the UK.

This month, we are very pleased that Bristol Water has joined SUGAR SMART Bristol with a splash!

Bristol Water joins the SUGAR SMART Bristol Campaign this summer with free Water Bar pop ups at popular events to help residents consume less sugar and waste less plastic.

The Bristol Water Bar was a huge success in 2016 as part of Bristol Water’s work with City to Sea’s Refill Bristol campaign, serving up tens of thousands of free refills at Bristol’s flagship summer events and saving over 15,000 bottles from being discarded.

This year, the team is bringing back the Water Bar in partnership with SUGAR SMART Bristol, led by Bristol Council and the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. This effort will tackle two key issues facing our communities – ill health caused by overconsumption of sugary drinks and litter. Read more
