Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap to climate and nature friendly food for all.

What is Bridging the Gap?

Bridging the Gap is demonstrating ways to enable people on a low income to access climate and nature friendly food. Food that is good for people and the planet is currently more expensive than food that is bad for health and produced in ways that damage the planet. We’re focused on the supply and affordability of organic fruit and vegetables to people who experience low income in cities.

The pilots

We’re piloting interventions across the four nations to show what is possible at the national and local level.

The pilots reflects our six approaches to bridge the gap that we co-produced with people working in food and farming. We’re using evidence from the pilots to advocate for urgent national and local level policy change.
