Urban Food Week 2012

In September 2012, London feasted on the fabulous local produce being grown, produced and cooked on its doorstep, with the capital city’s first Urban Food Week.

The week was a collaboration between restaurant network Ethical Eats; Capital Growth - the campaign to create 2012 new food-growing spaces by 2012; andCapital Bee, which promotes community beekeeping in London, to highlight the importance of buying and eating local food, urban growing and planting forage for bees.

During the week, restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs across the city showcased dishes and drinks made with ultra-local fruit, veg and herbs from urban farms, and from London honey cultivated in community beehives. Any diner submitting a picture of their Urban Food Week dish or drink was entered into a draw to win a one-day urban foraging course, by Food Safari.

Ethical Eats: Ethical Eats ran a network of London restaurants and catering businesses that care about sustainability.
