Bridgend Food Partnership

Bridgend Sustainable Food Partnership. 

  • We are a network of people from a range of organisations coming together with a shared desire to make change.
  • We want to ensure sustainable and healthy food is accessible to benefit everyone in Bridgend County Borough. 
  • The partnership focuses on a collaborative coordinated approach across the whole food system.

Aim and purpose. 
The aim of the Sustainable Food Partnership is to create a sustainable food strategy for Bridgend  County Borough. The strategy aims to enable equal opportunities for everyone in Bridgend to have good access to healthy food and to create a local food system that is resilient to food shocks resulting from climate change. The purpose of the food partnership is to have a coordinated collaborative  approach to sustainable food. This is done by engaging a diverse steering group, a wide range of  stakeholders, involvement with relevant networks that work across the 6 key areas and public  engagement. This ensures representation across the county borough to coproduce a strategy for  Bridgend.
