In October 2015 grassroots food and farming organisations in the UK began a process to create a People’s Food Policy for the UK. Stewarded by the LandWorkers’ Alliance, the aim of the project is to engage in a process from the ground up to articulate a vision of a fairer food system for all, and how it can be realised.
What is a food system?
A food system is the path that food travels from field to fork. It is made up of all the components of how food is grown, reared, harvested, processed, packaged, distributed, transported, accessed, consumed and disposed.

Press Release: London growers ask Mayoral candidates for land to feed capital

London growers ask Mayoral candidates for land to feed capital

Food growers from across London today have called on mayoral candidates to make the capital a global leader in progressive food economies by supporting policies for long-term tenures to new sustainable food projects.

The Community Food Growers Network – a democratic organisation of food growers that spans gardens across London – launched five policies based on two-years research for the new Mayor to implement in their London Plan once in office.

The group’s leading policy would mean London borough councils and the GLA would identify and publish lists of suitable land for community food production, and support groups and individuals to transform the spaces.
