Here's a copy of a draft Hackney Sustainable Food Charter, prepared by the new Hackney Food Partnership. Comments and support are welcome now but please also come along to the launch event on 2nd March, at The Russet, Hackney Downs Studios, from 3 to 4.30pm (food market outside from 12 noon to 5pm).
Through the Hackney Food Charter, we will be focusing on issues such as improving school and care meals,helping good food enterprises to flourish, providing residents with useful tools to shop, cook and eat healthily, and pushing for more food growing spaces.
Signatories to the Food Charter - which we hope will include public, private and community partners - will commit to promoting the pleasure and importance of good food to help create a vibrant, diverse, healthy and sustainable food culture.
At the event you will be invited to:
- Give your thoughts and ideas on how to improve food in the borough;
- Hear from other food partnerships around the UK on what can be achieved; and
- Visit food stalls, at the Village Green Market, showing some of the diversity of food available in Hackney
We would love you to join us on the day as well as become involved in the Hackney Food Partnership as it develops:

- Promote your organisation at the event with a stall or flyers.
- Join the Partnership - we're looking for active participants to join and help us grow.

Free, all welcome.
Hackney Sustainable Food Charter (draft)
Good food is vital to the quality of peoples’ lives in Hackney. By promoting healthy and sustainable food as part of a thriving food economy, the Hackney Sustainable Food Charter aims to improve health and wellbeing for all and to create a more connected, resilient and sustainable borough.
Signatories to the Charter – which we hope will include public, private and community partners – will commit to promoting the pleasure and importance of good food to help create a vibrant and diverse food culture. We will work together to increase both the demand and supply of delicious and affordable, fresh, seasonal, local and organic food throughout Hackney, contributing to a thriving local economy.
All organisations and individuals are welcome to sign up – if you want to add your support please contact the Hackney Food Partnership at firstname.lastname@example.org
