FOOD MATTERS.

How we eat. How we shop. How food is packaged. And how it is produced.

The choices we make matter. They matter because they affect our environment, landscape, greenhouse gas emissions, animal health and welfare, farm workers’ welfare and perhaps, most importantly, our own health and wellbeing.

At Food Durham everything we do comes back to the choices we make. And to that end our mission is simple:

“To create a food system that is Healthier, Greener and Fairer, where every household has access to ‘good food’ – food that is safe, nutritious, of good quality and environmentally sustainable.”

Food Durham has two main strands: Growing Durham, which encourages people to grow their own food, and Durham Food Hub, which has been created to support and champion independent food producers from across County Durham, giving them platforms to get their products to market.

If food is your thing, get in touch and see how we can help you.

Food Durham is managed by a team of highly experienced individuals who are committed to raising awareness of food, specifically where it comes from and how it impacts on things like our health, the environment and the economy.
