Food Cardiff, Food and Poverty Group

At Food Cardiff we believe that good food means fair food: it should be good for people, good for the place we live in, and good for our planet, as well as being affordable and nutritious. By promoting healthy, sustainable and ethical food, as part of a thriving local economy, we can improve health and wellbeing, and create a more vibrant, connected and prosperous city.
