By working together, in partnership, The Sustainable Food City of Bournemouth and Poole wants to connect, support and enable our food community, helping to grow a thriving food sector and cultivate nourished neighbourhoods.

The partnership helped Bournemouth and Poole become the World’s First Sustainable Fish City, and runs regular Restaurant Hops, the weekly Bournemouth Food Assembly and has established a School Garden at Lytchett Minster.

Join us and bring good food to our communities and help everyone make better food choices.

The Partnership is based on:

Unity – We strive to connect and unite all our communities around a shared belief in the value of good food.

Stewardship – We care for, value and preserve spaces for growing, cooking and eating food, food knowledge and culture with honesty and integrity.

Resilience – We work diligently to create resilience across the food sector as well as remaining a dependable, sustainable Partnership ourselves.

Nourishment – We know that food nourishes the mind and soul as well as the body so we strive to be creative and original in all that we do to provide real nourishment to all those who work with us.

Commitment – We are fundamentally committed to creating a vibrant, socially just and inclusive food sector and maintaining the tenacity required to achieve this.
