Cambridge Sustainable Food’s work is focused on partnerships, projects and campaigns that capture the imagination and help to deliver change in Cambridge and the surrounding area.

Our work was recognised nationally in 2016 when Cambridge won a Sustainable Food City Bronze Award, one of only 12 cities to hold this award. We are ambitious as an organisation and are working towards a Silver Award – ultimately, to a Gold.

Our work follows the key issues set out by Sustainable Food Cities.

See our Action Plan for 2017-2020 right here.

All of our work across the six issues, is designed to tackle the food challenges we face locally and to create a better, more sustainable Cambridge for the future.
