Bringing together the city's caterers to talk about healthy food choices

Ensuring people are well nourished is essential if they are to stay fit and well, and Meals on Wheels have traditionally played an important role in this especially for older people.

On Thursday evening, Brighton & Hove City Council won a national award for their trailblazing work around food, at the Soil Association's Catering Mark Awards in London.

The Food Partnership is joining up with Brighton Chamber of Commerce to bring you two workshops to help you develop your business. Only costing £7 each, this is an unmissable opportuntiy to nework and promote your products, but also gain and develop your business skills.

As part of Sustainable Fish Week in Brighton & Hove (#sustfishweek), we thought it might be good to see what technology is out there to help us buy more sustainably. These 3 mobile apps aim to help you work out which are the fish to buy and which are best avoided. They're all FREE, so why not give them a go for yourself.

So, who wants to help Brighton & Hove eat more sustainable fish?

Last year, Raymond Blanc laid down a challenge to see which city could be first to achieve 'Sustainable Fish Cities status'. Fourteen cities took up the challenge and we are responsible for coordinating the campaign here in Brighton & Hove.

Dorothy Stringer School opened their new canteen facility earlier this year having identified healthy eating as a school priority. Already an eco school, the 1,600 pupil secondary school have made radical changes to the way they prepare and serve school food.

We feel really proud of the bold decision taken by Brighton & Hove City Council to introduce minimum buying standards for all their catering contracts because it will bring about improvements to the food served to thousands across the city every day.

Thank you to all who have been involved! 

Through support from the Food Partnership, Brighton & Hove City Council has become the first in the country to introduce more stringent rules on food buying standards for all catering contracts over £75,000. It's a decision that will improve thousands of meals per year, will drive local economic development, meet carbon reduction targets and put nutritious and seasonal food on the menu.
