This report was compiled by London Food Link, a network run by Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, with contributions from many independent organisations that promote healthy and sustainable food, several members of the London Food Board and the London Food Board’s Chair, Rosie Boycott. It was published in November 2011.
The Good Food for London maps reveal that some London Boroughs are showing real leadership on several food issues – particularly Islington and Richmond, and also Camden, Croydon, Enfield, Greenwich, Merton, Sutton, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
The maps also challenge other Boroughs to follow their good example and take more action to help create a healthy and sustainable food system, for the benefit of everyone. If all London Boroughs took the simple, affordable and effective action in this report, it would significantly improve the health of Londoners, the livelihoods of the farmers and other food providers, and the sustainability of the food system on which we all depend.
For the first seven key food issues listed in the contents (see below), we have also provided maps showing how London Boroughs are already making progress. Each of these issues is also supported by a programme or organisation that can help boroughs to implement change. For the other key food issues, we have not provided maps – either because there is no easily available data, or because it is not easy to represent existing data on a map.
Information about additional action London Boroughs are taking to support healthy and sustainable food, which we may map in future.
