Leeds wins veg cities runner up!

We are delighted that Leeds was runner up for the Veg Cities prize at the recent The Food Foundation‘s Peas Please conference!

Peas Please is a national campaign to increase vegetable consumption, with a particular focus on low income groups and children. Leeds was recognized for FoodWise’s Veg Cities campaign, which aims to embed increasing vegetable consumption into a variety of projects, including Healthy Holidays, reaching out to diverse audiences and for our success in securing 43 pledges from 28 participants to serve more vegetables!

We’d like to highlight the success of our #JustOneMore campaign to encourage an extra portion of vegetables across a variety of settings. And the Feed Leeds campaign #sowarowXtra to encourage those with the skills to grow food to share seedlings and expertise with others. Together we can create a more veggie-friendly city!

Thank you to all the organizations that have pledged so far and we hope that next year we’ll win the top prize!
