What and Why?
Helping fight food inequality in Bristol
Bristol has an amazing food and drink culture, but 1 in 20 homes experience food insecurity, struggling to access enough food to eat. There are many brilliant community food projects working to tackle food insecurity, but they need funding and support.
So, you may be asking, why support Bristol Local Food Fund?
The Bristol Local Food Fund aims to tackle food insecurity by funding and supporting community food projects that are helping people most in need in our city.
The funds will be allocated by a Citizens Panel, made up of local people with lived experience of food insecurity, to ensure money will go where it is most needed.
This is a fund by the people of Bristol, helping to build a fairer food system in our city.
In November 2021, we ran a crowdfunding campaign that raised £57,000. We are currently working on the next stage of the project, to create a Citizens Panel who will decide how the grant funding is distributed.
