Call to Action! Good Food Greater Manchester needs your input on developing a strategic approach to food in Greater Manchester.

Good Food Greater Manchester is the official food policy board for Greater Manchester. We are a multi-stakeholder forum that focuses on the following key objectives:

  1. Promoting healthy and sustainable food to the public.
  2. Tackling food poverty, diet-related ill health and access to healthy food.
  3. Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects.
  4. Promoting a vibrant and diverse sustainable food economy.
  5. Transforming catering and food procurement.
  6. Reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system.

Over the next few months, we will be embarking on a strategy development process, working with a wide range of stakeholders and the wider community, building on the great work already being done in the region.

If you would like to be involved in this process, or be informed of developments, please get in touch and let us know any particular interests, ideas or concerns you may have.

Adrian Morley, Chair of the Good Food Greater Manchester Partnership said “We have an exciting opportunity, with the support we’ve gained from key strategic bodies, to fully engage with key stakeholders across the city region. There are multiple challenges and opportunities in terms of food and the only way we will make progress on this complex agenda is to collaborate more, share ideas and ultimately galvanise positive actions for change’.  

“The key aim of Good Food Greater Manchester is to help raise the profile of ‘good food’ in all its guises. Our priorities include reducing food waste, looking at how procurement practices can be improved and school food made healthier and more sustainable, and supporting groups like the Greater Manchester Food Poverty Alliance who are working to reduce food poverty. We are seeking ideas and expertise to progress this crucial agenda and join the dots. Join with us to help change Greater Manchester’s food system for the better.”
