The Council is a lead partner in Edible Edinburgh, a group of organisations, charities, businesses and individuals working together to promote sustainable food in the city.
Edible Edinburgh's vision is for 'a city where good food is available for all, making for healthy people, thriving communities and a sustainable environment.'
We worked with our partners in Edible Edinburgh to develop a sustainable food plan for the city. This looks at a broad range of issues including
- food poverty
- access to land for growing
- how growing our food affects climate change
- training for jobs in the food sector.
The plan also looks at what support is needed to let everyone play their part in changing our food system and culture for the better. You can download the plan below.
