Welcome To ShefFood

Sheffield’s Food Partnership

ShefFood is a cross-sector partnership of organisations across the city formed of local public agencies, businesses, individuals, academic and community organisations committed to working together to create a more sustainable food system for Sheffield.
When the food system works for People and for the Planet, it brings communities together; makes us all happier and healthier; and develops local economies for both today and tomorrow. The partnership exists to catalyse these efforts, bring ideas together to make a food system in Sheffield that works for everyone.

The food we eat comes from complex global systems,  which cover countless hands and activities from farm to fork and beyond. Our food system, at all levels, is facing many crises. Were asking you to take action and sign up to help get #ShefftoSilver, and have your say in ShefFood’s Food Strategy for Sheffield.
