The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership puts food at the heart of all we do. Growing food, cooking and eating are great ways to improve people’s lives.
For over fifteen years we have been working with food to engage with people. We are at the forefront of a global movement, which aims to bring people back to the basic message that good food is a right for all, brings power and energy to everyone and is a joy to be shared.
Vic Borrill, Director of the Food Partnership
The Food Partnership was started by local residents in 2003, and we now have over 10 staff delivering a range of projects. We’re a not-for-profit organisation and we work with a wide range of partners including community organisations, statutory agencies, local businesses and individual residents.
Our work has been recognised by independent bodies – most recently awarded ‘Non profit of the year’ 2019 at the Brighton & Hove Business Awards, ‘Team of the Year’ at the Cost Sector Catering Awards 2019 and the ‘Community Benefit Award’ at the 2019 Southeast RICS awards for the build project to create the Community Kitchen. We led Brighton & Hove’s successful submission for ‘Gold Sustainable Food City’ status. We hold the PQASSO Level 2 quality mark, and are proud to be a Living Wage employer.
The Food Partnership is grateful to its current funders for supporting this work: the Big Lottery Fund, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, the Fonthill Foundation, Sussex Community Foundation, Brighton & Hove CCG and Brighton & Hove City Council. Find out more about some of our activities below.
