Bristol Food Union
Bristol's food producing sectors are in crisis and need our help, now more than ever.
The Bristol community has been hit hard by COVID-19, and this is being particularly felt by the food producing and hospitality sectors.
What is Bristol Food Union?
Launched to keep our city fed during lockdown, Bristol Food Union is a collection of restaurants, food businesses and community organisations. They have linked the city's best independant restaurants with local farmers and food retailers to help Bristol City Council's emergency food provision.
The Tables Have Turned
Throughout lockdown they worked tirelessly to get meals to our doors and ensure our most vulnerable were being fed. Now it's our turn to help them.
Though some support has been offered in the form of the government package of business relief, it's not going to be enough for many. Indeed, some have closed already and there's a real risk others won't survive the winter.
What Can We Do?
The impending climate crisis means our nation's food security matters now more than ever, so we need to do what we can to help. Through your actions you'll also be reducing your carbon footprint, lowering your food miles, and supporting your local community.
- From work lunches to the daily milk, sign up to only buying local
- Have food delivered by your local farm shop or restaurant, and reduce your food miles
- Eat out at local independant cafes and restaurants, why travel when it's on your doorstep?
