Archive: Well London - Buy Well

Buywell worked in 10 deprived areas of London to make it easier to buy healthy, affordable and sustainably produced food locally

Buywell aimed to help Londoners living in these areas to eat more of a wider range of healthier foods by supporting local groups to plan, develop and run food access projects.

Buywell ran from summer 2008 until March 2011, and was one strand of Well London, a five year, Big Lottery funded programme to improve the health of residents living in 20 deprived areas of the city. The Well London Alliance, led by the London Health Commission, ran a portfolio of health and well-being projects. Well London partner London Sustainability Exchange commissioned London Food Link to lead on Buywell.

Buywell Boroughs
Buywell ran in 10 neighbourhoods. These areas were identified at the start of the Well London programme as having particular problems around healthy food access and all are among the 11% most deprived neighbourhoods in London.
