Last month, on the 10th March, 30 individuals, organisations and businesses attended our quarterly Food Cardiff network meeting. Our regular meet up brought together an eclectic mix of community food projects, food producers, food retailers, dietitians, educators and public sector officials from across the city.

A specialist financial services business with headquarters at One Central Square has become the latest city-centre organisation to get behind the campaign to make Cardiff one of the UK’s most sustainable food places by 2024. 

Food Cardiff, the city’s rapidly growing food partnership, is leading a campaign to bring together businesses, third-sector organisations, and major institutions in the city to help Cardiff reach Gold Sustainable Food Places status in the next two years. 

Helped by funding from FOR Cardiff’s City Ambition Fund we’re supporting businesses to ‘make a pledge’ to take actions which will help Cardiff to achieve Gold Sustainable Food Places status.

It’s not just food or hospitality businesses which can have an impact – here we hear from Gareth Cartwright, internal communication and engagement manager at city centre bank Hodge Bank

In November 2022 Food Cardiff hosted an event as part of the Fringe Farming project, to bring together stakeholders in the region to look at how to increase agroecological food production in and around Cardiff.

This report summarises the barriers, opportunities and potential actions which the 22 stakeholders identified during the workshop.

Last year, Cardiff was awarded Silver Sustainable Food Places status – becoming the first place in Wales (and one of only six places in the UK) to achieve the prestigious accolade; the scheme is based on bronze, silver and gold achievements across six key sustainable food issues.

Now, independent businesses, third-sector organisations, and major institutions in the city centre are being urged to join in, and help Cardiff achieve Gold Sustainable Food Places status by the year 2024. 

Our #GoodFoodCardiff campaign is our mission to make Cardiff become one of the UK’s most sustainable food places – by asking people from all walks of life to ‘make a pledge’ that will help Cardiff achieve Gold Sustainable Food Places status by the year 2024.

Thousands of people across Cardiff have attended workshops, community feasts, and good food gatherings over the last four weeks, as part of the third annual Good Food Cardiff Autumn Festival – a diverse programme of events across the city.

Food Cardiff and C3SC provided grants to 20 different schools and community groups to cover the cost of running an event as part of the festival – with other community organisations also joining in with their own self-funded events. 

The Good Food Cardiff Autumn Festival returns from 10 September to 18 October with dozens of events planned across the city.

Community groups, schools, gardens and businesses will run a wide range of events centred around cooking, sharing and growing food. Many events this autumn will focus on how communities are coming together to help people to continue to access healthy and nutritious food through the cost of living crisis.
