Bristol Bites Back Better

Bristol Bites Back Better is a campaign that empowers Bristolians to create a food system that will nourish our city far into the future.

The campaign aims to inspire action and collaboration on food, increase the visibility of those making change through food, celebrate Bristol’s diverse food community, and draw out and amplify voices that have something to say on Bristol’s food future. Join the conversation.

The pandemic has put food in the spotlight – the way we access it, how it affects our health and wellbeing, what it does to our environment, and how many livelihoods depend on it. By sharing knowledge, skills and stories, building networks and amplifying voices, we can address these issues through the lens of good food. It’s time for Bristol to #BiteBackBetter.

This website contains information, resources, stories and more to help you #BiteBackBetter, so explore the tabs below to discover how you can get involved.

Individuals and organisations who are ready to do even more can register and log actions that will count towards Bristol’s bid to become a Gold Sustainable Food City – an ambition that will lay the foundation for the next decade of building a city that puts food that’s good for our health, our communities and nature at its heart.
