Between 16th and 24th October, the Good Food Cardiff Autumn Festival will see a programme of good food events happening across the city, centred on nutritious food, sustainability and connecting with likeminded individuals.
Launching on World Food Day (16th October), local artist, Nathan Wyburn will be creating a large-scale image using locally grown fruit and veg, which will then be cooked up by groups throughout the festival. As well as this, the Festival will be welcoming good food content and activities from partners across the city, including food quizzes, a Virtual Grow Along, Pumpkin Carving sessions and much more.
The festival will also mark the launch of Cardiff’s city-wide food strategy at its Good Food Summit on the 22nd October. The food strategy has been developed with the support of over 2,500 people and organisations in the city, identifying five Good Food Goals to prioritise over the coming years, and helping to improve the way individuals and businesses grow, buy, cook and eat across Cardiff.
The online Good Food Summit will bring together leaders, businesses, organisations, community groups and activists to kick-start action to create a better food future.
