Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet

Are you excited about what we can do for good local food together?  From getting local food into hospitals, to making the most of every field's produce in Herefordshire - this alliance can make a difference.ruth save the wye jul 23

Picking, Processing and Gleaning:

We are working with Sustainable Ledbury, Ledbury Food Bank and Pot and Page Community Hub to harvest apples for use by the food bank this autumn / winter.  We'll aim to do similar with the Wildlife Trust in an orcahrd in Hereford, and


Many producers and partners will be involved in three feast events in the autumn,


We'll be shouting about the work of the Food Alliance at the Indie Food Festival in Hereford this August bank holiday.

If none of this floats your boat, please  sign the Food Charter and encourage others to do the same!

You can help take the message to your street, town, campus - please get in touch.  A quick conversation with cafes, restaurants and market stalls - we'll provide flyers and an easy way of letting us know if organisatrions / individuals would like a laminated banner, more flyers etc.

And if you are up for sharing the message in a more electronic / online way - get in touch too!

And to be part of steering the alliance, head here.

One opportunity is the weekend before Ledbury Big Soup - on 19th November,  helping spread the word about this joint event of many Ledbury businesses championing local food.
