Gold Food City Bid: Toolkit of resources for individuals

Last year we launched the bid to become the UK’s first Gold Sustainable Food City in 2020. We now need champions from across the city to share what they’re doing in support of the bid so more people become aware of all the great food work going on. Here are some ideas below, or you can get in touch with us for further info.

Get involved

The following would be really useful to help us raise awareness of the bid:

  1. If you take an action to support the bid, please use #goldfoodcitybid and tag in @btnhovefood this will help us track any activity and conversations across all social media channels
  2. We need you to be the eyes and ears of the bid – tell us what amazing food work you’ve spotted going on across the city (and into Sussex) and share it via social media – using #goldfoodcitybid
  3. Use the resources to share your support:
