The food we eat impacts our lifestyle in Portsmouth and Southsea. It’s not just about our health – it’s about our communities and businesses, local food producers, and the environment too. We started Food Portsmouth to connect all these together, and to reduce inequalities.
Launched in 2015, Food Portsmouth is a cross-sector, not-for-profit network of public, private, charity and community organisations and individuals working together to make good food available to all in Portsmouth and Southsea.
We think food should be:
- good for people,
- good for the place we live,
- good for our planet.
Food in Portsmouth should also be affordable and tasty. Good food creates resilient, healthy communities. How food is produced should respect people, animals and the natural environment. How food is sold should support jobs, training and the local economy.
Food Portsmouth works with a range of people and organisations; whether you are an individual, a family, a school, a small business or social enterprise, a charity, or part of a large organisation, you can make a positive change! We provide advice and support to help you make informed decisions about good food. Find out more about our Food Portsmouth members here.
