What you can do

  • Find out about growing your own food in your garden, patio, roof or balcony.
  • Get your food from a local source – support local growers and reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Buy your food in season – it’s cheaper and will probably be local.
  • Join a local cooking or growing project – or start your own.
  • Take part in one of the many food events and festivals in the city.

Spade to Spoon - our Food Strategy and Action Plan

The council’s Food Strategy and Action Plan [PDF 2.2mb] addresses a range of issues including sustainable food procurement, food waste, food access, education, economic development and climate change. 

The plan was developed by Brighton & Hove Food Partnership. Its aim is to achieve a sustainable food system for the city – one that is healthy, respects environmental limits and supports a vibrant farming and food economy.
