Urban Food Fortnight connects restaurants and retailers with London’s edible gardens and small producers. This year we have 15 flagship events and loads of fringe events showcasing the best food and drink on offer in the city with special menus, one-off events and supper clubs.
Urban Food Fortnight began life as Urban Food Week in 2012. It is run to celebrate London’s gastronomic talent, giving everyone the opportunity to try genuinely local food, including delicacies such as Tottenham made cheese, Stratford sourced fish, Enfield reared lamb and Hackney grown salad.
Each year the packed programme of events sees urban growers celebrating their gardens with harvest feasts, pop-up dinners, botanical cocktail nights and foraging walks. To date we 've had hundreds of restaurants, growers, small batch producers and beekeepers participating in Urban Food Fortnight.
Throughout the year the London Food Link team continues to work to support local food businesses in the capital, through matchmaking small batch suppliers with restaurants and retailers, as well as lots of promotion through our magazine The Jellied Eel.
London Food Link: This is the umbrella for all of Sustain's initiatives in London. Our work includes helping to influence local government policy, hands-on food growing training, running sessions for public sector caterers, creating guidance for independent eateries and food producers, public awareness campaigns, and joining the dots between people around specific food issues. The LFL supporter network is open to everyone who grows, produces, teaches, peddles, promotes and simply enjoys good food in the capital.

The summit will consider meat and dairy production and consumption in the context of the climate and nature emergency, where inspiring work and opportunities exist, and the assumptions and underlying values about meat which have shaped our policy to date.
