Sustainable Food Cities have two new practical guides on food partnerships with local authorities.
‘Good Policy for Good Food’
Local authorities have a wide range of policy levers at their disposal that can be used to drive positive social, economic and environmental change related to food and to embed that change for the long term.
Policy is, however, an area that many local food partnerships struggle with as they often lack the time, resources, expertise and/or will to navigate what tends to be a complex and cumbersome policy-making process.
This guide provides a toolbox of food policy levers, along with clear practical examples of where these have been successfully used. We hope it will help SFC Members to engage more effectively with local policy-making and to reap the full benefits that doing so can bring.
‘Engaging Local Authorities’ - Stories, challenges and tips from the Sustainable Food Cities Network
This guide outlines the key mechanisms for engaging local authorities in the SFC agenda. It should help answer questions such as:
The guide also includes a brief look at SFC Network member experiences of engaging their Clinical Commissioning Groups.
The Sustainable Food Cities network was founded and is coordinated by Food Matters, Soil Association and Sustain.
