Cambridge Sustainable Food are an innovative and growing partnership of public, private and community organisations.

This sustainable food charter sets out a vision of three key themes that guide us in developing an action plan for improving food culture in Cambridge.


A: People

  • Ensuring all people have access to affordable, nutritious, sustainably produced and tasty food, prepared to high hygiene standards, regardless of income

  • Helping people gain and pass on the knowledge and skills to grow, prepare, cook and enjoy food

  • Supporting the rights of workers throughout the food chain to fair pay and safe working conditions

B: Community

  • Encouraging a diverse range of independent enterprises that provide sustainable, local food and employment

  • Bringing communities together to celebrate the culinary traditions of our diverse population

  • Providing support for community food growing projects and other food related activities

C: The Planet

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from field to fork

  • Supporting food production that protects natural resources and ecosystems

  • Reducing food waste and packaging

  • Increasing composting and recycling
