Building Resilience: Food Cardiff’s Five Year Food Security Plan
Being food secure means being sure of your ability
to secure enough food of sufficient quality and
quantity to allow you to stay healthy and
participate in society.
As the challenge of food insecurity grows, our
plans to mitigate its effect will need to increase in
ambition. This plan forms part of Food Cardiff’s
broader Food Strategy for the city and as a key
commitment in Cardiff’s Wellbeing Plan.
