Creating a greener, more sustainable Hull.

The Hull Food Partnership is overseen by our chair and cross-sector steering group which works across all sectors to realise our vision for Hull to become a Sustainable Food City.

Anyone is welcome as we aim to connect businesses, organisations and individuals across Hull and the surrounding area to:

Promote healthy and sustainable food to the public.

Tackle food poverty, diet-related ill health and access to affordable healthy food.

Build community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects.

Promote a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy.

Transform catering and food procurement.

Reduce waste and the ecological footprint of the food system.

Let's Grow Together

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 Places Network.

Hull Food Charter

The Hull Food Charter has been developed through wide ranging consultations with organisations, businesses and individuals working to tackle the key issues we face around food in Hull. It sets out our aspirations for Hull as a Sustainable Food City, addressing food poverty, better access to fresh and healthy produce, increasing food skills and knowledge and supporting sustainable local food production, procurement and enterprise.

Hull Food Partnership’s Action Plan was written in April 2019 and clearly sets out the direction of the partnership with actions matched against the objectives of the Hull Food Charter.
