FoodWise Leeds

FoodWise is a City-wide campaign which aims to unify, promote and celebrate the people, projects, organisations and businesses delivering good food work across Leeds.

The campaign will help to address the growing problems of health inequalities, including malnutrition and obesity, reducing food insecurity, while supporting local food businesses, and reducing the environmental impact of the production, trade and consumption of food, with a strong emphasis on reducing food waste.

FoodWise Leeds also celebrates good food through promoting food growing, as well as developing cooking skills and the enjoyment of eating healthy food.

FoodWise Leeds is comprised of representatives from across the food system that lead, or directly contribute to, the campaigns and projects in the Leeds Food Action Plan. 

The Leeds Food Partnership

The Leeds Food Partnership (LFP) is the managing board of FoodWise Leeds and is a member of Sustainable Food Cities (SFC), a national network of cities and localities that are developing cross-sectoral partnerships to bring about healthy and sustainable food systems. http://sustainablefoodcities.org/

The LFP recently achieved the SFC bronze award for delivering a joined-up holistic approach to food work across the City.  FoodWise Leeds aims to build on this success by continuing to engage with new and existing partners who share the vision of the Leeds Food Charter.
