Sustain / Food Legacy / Who's working on it?

Food Legacy working group


The Food Legacy programme is not about setting up new support programmes to promote healthy and sustainable food. It is about influencing and promoting those that already exist. We will seek to collaborate with a wide range of organisations interested in promoting healthy and sustainable food in the catering, restaurant, hospitality and events sectors. The programme is overseen by a smaller Food Legacy steering group, for which details are provided on a separate page. We want to use the inspiration of the London 2012 Food Vision to inspire significant changes in the way food is provided, for the benefit of people and the planet.

If you would like to join in, please get in touch! Contact details are at the bottom of this page, or email:

Some of the following organisations are already actively involved with the Food Legacy programme, to help promote the Food Legacy pledge, and (where relevant) to promote the good work of their sustainability schemes, members and food producers. Others are groups that we will seek to work with and support over the course of the programme:

Government and related organisations

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and charities

Food Legacy: The campaign, launched October 2011, is inspired by the London 2012 Food Vision adopted by the organisers of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Food Legacy asks caterers, restaurants, event organisers and hospitality organisations to commit publicly to taking steps to improve the healthiness, ethics and sustainability of the food they serve.
