Following on for the Low Carbon Lunch initiative in September and COP26 in Glasgow in November, Sustainable Food Places (SFP) has launched a new campaign called Food for the Planet, which encourages individuals, food businesses and Local Authorities to tackle the climate and nature emergencies through food.

We’re delighted that the draft of the second Climate Emergency Response Plan which is being developed by the DCC Low Carbon Team is reflecting the importance of action on food and that at the recent County Durham Partnership’s Environment Event, the Chair of the Environment Board stated that increasingly, we are recognising that food is at the heart of many of the climate issues we will have to face.  Food Durham is continuing to press the point that food and climate are closely linked and we hope to bring partners on board and join the SFP campaign before too long.
