The Lambeth Food Partnership, launched in June 2012, to champion and support food work taking place in the borough to flourish.
Today Lambeth has over 200 community food growing projects in the borough, a vibrant street market culture, and a borough-wide cash first approach to support
residents to access good food.
However, the Covid pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis and the ongoing pressure on statutory and voluntary sector organisations has changed the landscape and so the Food Partnership is working to bring more people and organisations together, inviting old and new members to re-imagine how the Partnership can work to ensure local people and communities are at the heart of a flourishing sustainable healthy food landscape.
- Works to create a food system where everybody in Lambeth can eat well and make food choices that nourish themselves, their community and the environment,
- Is based on the principles of food justice including equitable access to food which is culturally appropriate and nutritious,
- Strives to be inclusive and relevant, with workstreams that reflect the needs and issues faced by the diverse communities in Lambeth,
- Has sustainability at its core – responding to emergency food situations (such as supporting emergency food hub provision during Covid) whilst long term the goal is for food system transformation.
