About the Hull Food Partnership

The Hull Food Partnership is open to everyone working across all sectors of our food systems and culture. Through working together, we support and drive activity to realise our vision of Hull as a Sustainable Food City. It is hosted by Rooted in Hull.

We understand our local food system is complex, which is why we are engaging with people, organisations and businesses across the city to tackle the issues we face. From policy makers and city leaders, to businesses, local food producers, community organisers, public sector workers, citizens and volunteers, we all have our part to play in changing and influencing our food environment for a sustainable future. Hull is a member of the national Sustainable Food Cities Network. This gives Hull a framework to develop our own unique approach.

The Hull Food Partnership set out aspirations for the city at the launch of our food charter on the 15th of June. The Hull Food Charter has been developed through wide ranging consultations with organisations, businesses and individuals working to tackle key issues we face around food in Hull. The charter sets out our aspirations for Hull, addressing food poverty, better access to fresh and healthy produce, increasing food skills and knowledge and supporting sustainable local food production, procurement and enterprise.

The Hull Food Partnership is currently managed by a small steering group from voluntary and public-sector backgrounds with a wealth of experience.
