“The Bristol pilot is committed to supporting and encouraging initiatives that improve well-being by creating the context for all people in the City of Bristol - irrespective of social or ethnic background - having access to resources, abilities and facilities to grow, purchase, prepare and cook fresh, healthy and affordable food. In essence we aspire to a ‘Zero Hunger Bristol.” 

Work Priorities

Feeding Bristol was established in the summer of 2017 with wide community participation and support. Following an open consultation with key stakeholders in the city, the group determined a set of 5 priorities:

  1. Improving emergency provision to support immediate need (in particular during the school holiday periods). Initial focus on vulnerable children, isolated elderly and refugees / asylum seekers.
  2. Improving education relating to cooking and healthy eating.
  3. Significantly increasing urban food production and the supply of good quality local food to the city within a sustainable economic framework.
  4. Improving provision of healthy food across all parts of the city (and the surrounding areas) through home and local growing projects
  5. Tackling issues surrounding benefit sanctions and welfare reform

Who's Involved

Feeding Bristol has support and participation from the community, city council, Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees, and Kerry McCarthy, MP for Bristol East.
