On Friday, 29th November, 2013, the Bristol Food Policy Council, Bristol Food Network, Bristol Pound, Bristol Green Capital, and Eat Drink Bristol Fashion co-hosted over 120 representatives of Bristol’s thriving and growing “Good Food” sector for a day of thinking, talking, and “putting flesh on the bones” of the “Bristol Good Food Plan” which was launched on the day. The group of highly committed attendees also brainstormed ideas for the Bristol “Food Connections” events which will occur in and around the BBC’s Food and Farming Awards Fortnight from 1st -11th May 2014.

Please see below for the movie summing up the day by filmmaker Becky Bell, the Good Food Plan, and the What Does Good Food Mean for Bristol animation produced by Ryan Biercewicz. For more information, please go to http://bristolfoodpolicycouncil.org/.

Our “Good Food” vision for Bristol:

Imagine you lived in a truly sustainable food city, renowned for the vibrancy and diversity of its food culture, and for a food system which, from field to fork, is good for people, places and the planet. A city where good food is visible and celebrated in every corner and where everyone has access to fresh, seasonal, local, organic and fairly traded food that is tasty, healthy and affordable, no matter where they live.

Picture a city where every school, hospital or care home, every restaurant and work place canteen serves only delicious sustainable food; where good food enterprises multiply and thrive; where people of every age, and from every background, are developing skills in growing and cooking and are practically involved in creating a positive and inclusive food culture in their own communities.

Would you want to live in a city like this? We believe that that this is an achievable reality for Bristol….
