Our Sustainable Food City vision for Hull is of a flourishing local food system which is both healthy and fair for people and the environment. We will work together to increase local and sustainable food production, retail and procurement, directly supporting our local economy and reducing the need for unnecessary transportation and waste. Through this action, we are taking responsibility for our food system, and developing opportunities for education and meaningful employment. Food equality is central to this vision, ensuring that everyone can access a range of healthy food appropriate for their needs and acquire the skills needed to nourish themselves and their families. Utilising and developing the skills and assets that already exist in communities across the city, we will grow a healthy and resilient food system, and become a city in which the joy of eating, cooking, growing and celebrating good food can be shared by all.
