Urban Food Week is a celebration of the fantastic food being produced by community projects in our city. The event is a collaboration between Ethical Eats; Capital Growth - the campaign to create 2,012 new food-growing spaces by the end of 2012; and Capital Bee, which promotes community beekeeping in London.
Restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs across the capital will be showcasing dishes and drinks made with ultra-local fruit, veg and herbs, and from honey made by bees in community hives.
As a restaurant you can choose to ‘adopt a plot’, or ‘adopt a hive’, and build a long-term relationship with their local food growing space or beekeeper. Or you can simply buy produce from an Urban Food Week producer on an ad hoc basis and create some exciting menu specials with it.
We’ll provide postcards, posters, badges and stickers to promote the week, and talk to the press and generally get the word out via our networks. We’ll also be running a competition, voted by the public, to find the best Urban Food Week menu special put on during the week.
