We are a partnership of organisations working together for greener, fairer and healthier food for all, through sustainable local action.
We believe that everyone should have access to enough good food.
Use our online map to find your nearest foodbank, community larder, affordable cafe, membership supermarket or homeless outreach.
There are all sorts of way to get involved with growing food in your local community, from school growing projects and community gardens and orchards, to horticultural societies, Community Supported Agriculture and Care Farms.
Find out what’s going on in your area, and galvanise your community through food.
