Food Exeter is charity, formed in 2019, to work with others towards sustainable and healthy food for all in Exeter. We seek lasting change to our local food system by tackling the issues of food poverty,diet-related ill health, food waste and unsustainable farming practices.
Our focus is on achieving strategic, step change across the city, through collaboration with others who share our aims.
Although Food Exeter is a relatively new charity, a Food Exeter partnership formed in 2016, which led to the creation of the charity. Collaboration and partnership continues to be a core way of working for us.
We divide our areas of work into three main themes:
Community food. Using food as a way of building community and individual strength, formal and informal skills, understanding about food and a way of addressing food insecurity
We are Charitable Incorporated Organisation, with 3 Trustees and a small Advisory Group.
Local Food Economy. Working to peturb and change the local food system, to deliver mroe agro-ecological production, new entrants into growing and farming, farm to fork initiatives and local food hub research and activity.
Food Insecurity. Looking at ways to reduce food insecurity and empower people living with food insecurity
