Net-zero through food
Our Every Mouthful Counts toolkit contains simple actions for councils to tackle the climate and nature emergency through food.
Take the Planet Pledge
If you are a food business, commit to serve more plants, better meat and freshly prepared food from ingredients sourced locally.
“From the creation of our Good Food Policy in 2016 it has always been our commitment to have stretched targets with a key one being our commitment to increase the availability of plant based/vegetarian options throughout all our catering operations.”
Ian Macaulay, Catering Director, The University of Edinburgh
“Glasgow's Food Growing Strategy is one of the most forward thinking in Scotland. The Council Team behind it are truly committed to working with community growers and allotment holders to implement it, which is so refreshing and makes our work as community food activists much easier!”
Abi Mordin, Glasgow Community Food Network
“We’ve just published a climate change strategy and food is a big part of that. Local authorities can be slow recognising those connections. The evidence is quite clear and I often wish they would come to the realisation a lot faster.”
Cllr Alex Collis, Executive Councillor for Open Spaces, Sustainable Food and Community Wellbeing, Cambridge City Council
