"Brighton & Hove were the inspiration for the Sustainable Food Cities programme – they are true trailblazers leading the way of one of the fastest growing social movements in the UK today." Tom Andrews, Programme Manager, Sustainable Food Cities

Sustainable Food Cities is a national initiative run by a coalition of NGOs led by the Soil Association, Food Matters and Sustain, and funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
