Our Mission:
Food

By 2030, everyone eats well every day with nutritious, affordable, sustainable food.

Over the past year we have been working together with partners and the community to understand what it would take to ensure that people in Camden have access to nutritious, affordable and sustainable food. We imagined what our life would be like if in 2030 every person in Camden ate well every day, with good quality, affordable food that is good for them and the planet.

What if everyone in Camden ate a healthy, nutritious, and sustainable meal every day? Where food supply chains are sustainable and create local opportunities? And where food nourishes us to lead long, healthy, and happy lives and helps sustain the planet?

We know that to do this we need to tackle the deep rooted causes of food insecurity – by improving access to good quality work, housing, and decent pay. We know that for older people, disabled people and carers, food insecurity can be especially challenging.

A growing movement of people in Camden are working towards a future where everyone has dignified access to healthy and nutritious food every day. We want to create a future where food has a fundamental positive impact on everyone’s wellbeing – and can do so long into the future.

If you are a resident, or work for a local organisation or business that wants to get involved in this mission, Get in touch, we want to hear from you.
