The Food Durham newsletter is designed to give you a flavour of the breadth of work taking place across the partnership, all of which aims to support the development of a better food system for County Durham.

This year we aim to engage as many organisations and individuals as we can in reviewing and refreshing our Sustainable Local Food Strategy 2014-2020.  We will need your help to ensure it continues to address local needs with appropriate action.  Watch out for further information about how you can get involved in the process.

We are also starting our journey towards achieving the Silver Sustainable Food Cities award.  We achieved Bronze in 2018 and Silver represents a significant development but we’re up for the challenge! The criteria set out by Sustainable Food Cities provides a tried and tested framework and may represent our best chance of aligning with the National Food Strategy currently in development.
