A Food Plan for South Gloucestershire


What is the Food Plan for South Gloucestershire?

The purpose of the Food Plan for South Gloucestershire is to create a more healthy, sustainable and just food system for our area. It will do this by identifying the key needs and challenges, and by providing a framework for coordinated action.


A Food Plan in South Gloucestershire will create a vision for improving the food system and culture in South Gloucestershire. It will be a collaborative project that brings together a range of stakeholders that have an influence on food in the region. It will celebrate the good work that is currently happening and highlight the gaps for improvement.


The Food Plan covers three Key themes;

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Jobs and local food economy


A stakeholder plan has been developed, which incorporates three levels of involvement:

1. Steering group: the leading group that will oversee the development of the Food Plan, and support decision-making

2. Sub groups: groups who will support content development in relation to the three key themes

3. Food Network: a vehicle for sharing good practice, providing networking opportunities, and promoting food projects, activities and events in South Gloucestershire

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
