About Good Food In Greenwich

Good Food in Greenwich is all about bringing together people and organisations to help make Greenwich a fairer, healthier, and more sustainable borough.

The partnership addresses a wide range of issues including promoting sustainable and healthy food, tackling food poverty, building community skills, creating a thriving food economy, ensuring better food is bought in public settings, and tackling food waste and the impact on the environment. 

 

It’s a huge task, but we’ve already seen such incredible change across the borough from our partners in how they buy, prepare and serve food including growing it! But we want to go even further. 

We are part of the Sustainable Food Cities network and want to go for our Silver Award to really show off all the great work we’re doing in the borough.  

 

But, Good Food in Greenwich is a partnership; it relies on all of us getting together to make these changes so Greenwich can be known as a great place for good food for all. 

 

Good Food to us means food from farming and supply systems that: 

  • Enhances the health and welfare of people and animals 

  • Improves the working and living environment 

  • Promotes fairness and enrich society and culture 

But we need your help! We need every person, business, organisation, and public sector body to get involved, and there’s loads of ways to do this.  Here’s how: 

  1. Join the partnership to find out more and network with like-minded people. Come to our meetings and get inspired. The meetings happen every quarter 

  1. Join the Steering Group. If you’ve got even more ambition, join the steering group and help shape the work of Good Food in Greenwich! Quarterly meetings will work on an action plan to drive forward change. Email goodfig@gcda.org.uk  of you’d like to get involved 

  1. Join a subgroup – we have lots of work going on in some specific areas such as food poverty, community groups and food growing.  If you have an interest in a specific matter, please get in touch to find out more – you can email goodfig@gcda.org.uk
