Capital Growth Project

Description

Capital Growth aims to create 2012 new community food growing spaces across London by the end of 2012. We offer practical help, grants, training and support to groups wanting to establish community food growing projects as well as advice to landowners.

Applicants to the scheme can be new or established community-led groups or businesses located in Greater London. Whilst projects can be for commercial gain, they must provide a community benefit in all cases. We offer support to spaces representing a diverse range of projects, boroughs, types and sizes of land, and community groups. We work with local authorities, housing associations and other landowners, making under-used land available to growers, and to communities interested in growing food.

There are many ways to get involved in this exciting campaign. See our website http://www.capitalgrowth.org/ for ideas of the different ways you can benefit and help. You can get involved with your local spaces, take part in our food growing training sessions and much more so join the mailing list and keep updated.

Eating Better

Description

Eating Better is a broad alliance working to help people move towards eating less meat and more food that’s good for us and good for the planet. We are calling for action by governments, the food industry and all those who can make a difference to help people eat a greater variety of plant-based foods and less meat; and to support farming that produces meat in ways that benefit the environment, health, global food security and animal welfare.

Launched in July 2013, with the endorsement of celebrity chef and campaigner, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Eating Better brings together a growing number of supporting organisations and partner networks from a diverse range of fields including environment, animal welfare, public health, faith groups, campaigning, international development and responsible food.

Eating Better’s vision is a world in which everyone values and has access to healthy, humane and sustainable diets. High meat consuming countries and individuals have reduced their consumption in line with health recommendations and GHG reduction targets. Meat is produced humanely and sustainably, its production provides sustainable livelihoods, environmental benefits and it is consumed in quantities consistent with good health and global resource use capacity.

Gleaning Network UK

Description

Gleaning Network UK, recently featured on BBC Radio 4's Food Programme and Al Jazeera, is an exciting new initiative to save the thousands of tonnes of fresh fruit and vegetables that are wasted on UK farms every year. Farmers across the country often have no choice but to leave tonnes of their crops unharvested and get ploughed back in the soil. These crops often cannot reach the market either because they fail to meet the retail strict cosmetic standards or because of overproduction.

We coordinate teams of volunteers, local farmers and food redistribution charities in order to salvage this fresh, nutritious food and direct it to those that need it most, such as homeless hostels and charities. To date, we have salvaged several tonnes of excellent unmarketable British produce, including apples, cabbages, cauliflowers, spring greens and kale, and redistributed them to charities such as FareShare and the Best Before Project. The movement is gathering pace, and we're rapidly expanding into a national network, with hubs launching in Kent, Brighton, Cambridge, Manchester, London and Bristol.

Join us in the fields! We need volunteer harvesters, drivers and coordinators. Join the Arable Spring!

Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)

Description

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an international non-profit organisation set up to help transform the seafood market to a sustainable basis. The MSC runs the only certification and ecolabelling programme for wild-capture fisheries consistent with the ISEAL Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards and the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation guidelines for fisheries certification.

The MSC has offices in London, Seattle, Tokyo, Sydney, The Hague, Glasgow, Berlin, Cape Town, Paris, Madrid and Stockholm.

In total, over 240 fisheries are engaged in the MSC programme with 131 certified and over 130 under full assessment. Another 40 to 50 fisheries are in confidential pre-assessment. Together, fisheries already certified or in full assessment record annual catches of close to nine million metric tonnes of seafood. This represents over 10 per cent of the annual global harvest of wild capture fisheries. Certified fisheries currently land over five million metric tonnes of seafood annually – close to six per cent of the total harvest from wild capture fisheries. Worldwide, more than 11,500 seafood products, which can be traced back to the certified sustainable fisheries, bear the blue MSC ecolabel.

With a remit to improve the nutritional health of people across the whole of the UK, rather than just London, The Food Commission was instrumental in ensuring that the public, and the media, had a much greater interest in the food we eat and the effects it can have on both our health and our environment.

Although the Commission is not currently active, its website still maintains a vast number of articles which remain pertinent to the ongoing debate about food and farming in the UK and Europe. As such, it is a useful source of information and contacts for anyone concerned about what we eat and how our food is produced.

The Real Bread Campaign

Description

Part of the food and farming charity Sustain, the Real Bread Campaign brings together everyone who cares about the state of the nation’s loaf life.

Sadly, the way in which the vast majority of products marketed as ‘bread’ are now manufactured and sold could lead one to question whether we as a nation give two hoots about our daily loaf any more. The good news, however, is that change is underway and Real Bread is on the rise.

The Campaign’s simple definition of Real Bread is: made without the use of any undeclared processing aids or other artificial additives. From that universally accessible starting point, it finds ways of making bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.

Campaign work includes baking in schools with kids, championing local Real Bread bakeries, producing guidance for people setting up Community Supported Bakeries or home-based microbakeries. It has plans for a therapeutic baking project with people living with mental health issues and a range of other challenges.

The Campaign welcomes support from everyone. Benefits include an exclusive quarterly magazine; discounts of bread making courses, ingredients, equipment and more; eligibility for frequent competitions; and access to an online forum to ask for and share bready ideas and information.

Think.Eat.Drink.

Description

Think.Eat.Drink (T.E.D) was founded by Jamie Grainger-Smith in 2005 to provide a service promoting sustainability and responsibility in the world of food and drink. T.E.D is unique in that it encompasses four different areas to meet a variety of needs within this including: a Consultancy service, Event organisation and catering, a Membership scheme of responsible suppliers, as well as its own seasonal and responsible Restaurant.

Our experience comes from creating and managing some of the world’s most forward thinking and environmentally aware food and drink projects. This pioneering work around sustainability had not been done before, so we had to find our own direction within this area, through hard work, lots of research and then ‘live experience’, then finding the most practical way forward.

hiSbe Food CIC

Description

hiSbe stands for how it Should be, meaning People BEFORE Profit

Today huge companies and retailers dominate the food industry and they are really only interested in making profits for their shareholders and big bosses.

When they put their profits before people, the planet and doing the right thing it takes the good out of our food and harms our health and communities.

It also leads to poor animal welfare, bad treatment of producers here and abroad, massive amounts of food waste and damage to the environment.

It’s out of date and it’s just not sustainable.

The good news is companies like hiSbe are working with communities to show the food industry it’s time for a new, fairer food system for the 21st Century. We are putting People BEFORE Profit so everyone can afford healthy, sustainable, good food.

hiSbe is here to shine a light on the food industry, talk honestly about food and give people an alternative to supermarket shopping. This year we’ll open the first hiSbe grocery store in Brighton. hiSbe stores will put all the good stuff in one place, have a Fair Price Promise and invest profits back into communities.
