Summary

Building on local food activism since the 1970s, the Bristol Food Policy Council (FPC) was created in 2011 to provide a focused group of committed people from different parts of the food system who could use their influence and networks to put food onto the City agenda and keep it there. The Food Policy Council defines its aim as ‘Good food for everyone, by which we mean food that is not just tasty, healthy and affordable, but also good for nature, good for workers, good for animal welfare and good for local businesses.’ Since 2011 the FPC has in particular worked with multiple stakeholders to create ‘A Good Food Plan for Bristol’ (2013) leading to a detailed Food Action Plan for the City (2015), inclusion of food as a theme for the Bristol Green Capital Partnership (comprising 800 organisations). The work is continually evolving, and the FPC has now helped create, along with other groups, an overarching Bristol Good Food Alliance to foster coordination and shared support for Bristol’s food movement. The underlying principles relate to health, social justice and care of the ecological world.
