Food has important social and cultural meaning. It is also a key area that residents and businesses can improve their environmental impact. Bringing awareness to the food we eat can bring great benefits to our health, our community and our planet. The objectives and targets agreed for this part of the strategy will enable everyone in Ealing to engage with sustainable, fresh and healthy food.
A working group made up of people representing Ealing’s food community worked alongside us to develop this fifth theme of the council’s climate and ecological emergency strategy.
The first step agreed in this plan is for the council to lead the creation of a food partnership. A local cross-sector food partnership involves public and third sector, business and community representatives that meets regularly and is committed to working together across all key food issues.
Ealing’s food partnership will focus on the climate emergency and greenhouse gas emissions but will grow to encompass many more priority issues that it identifies over time.
