Sustainable Food City
We became members of Sustainable Food Cities to make healthy food a defining characteristic of both Bournemouth and Poole
At Bournemouth and Poole Councils, we understand the impact food has on our health and lifestyle. Food is at the heart of some of our greatest problems. From obesity and diet-related disease to food poverty and waste.
It’s part of the solution too.
We became founding members of Sustainable Food Cities to make healthy and sustainable food a defining characteristic of both Bournemouth and Poole. By helping people make small changes in their relationship with what they eat we can help make life better for everyone in our towns.
Bournemouth and Poole Councils successfully won funding from the national programme in order to work towards Sustainable Food City status.
Only five other cities have the status. Belfast, Cardiff, Liverpool, Newcastle and Stockport.
