The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership is a not-for-profit organisation that works on all aspects of food in relation to the city.


We deliver a range of community-based projects that cover cooking, healthy eating, weight management, food growing and reducing food waste.

Major aims:

  • More locally produced food
  • Better access to affordable, fresh, seasonal food
  • More opportunities for people to learn to cook and grow food
  • An increased understanding of the links between food and health
  • A better understanding of where our food comes from
  • An increased enjoyment of and respect for food.

The Food Partnership is comprised of various projects:

• Harvest Brighton & Hove: A citywide programme encouraging food growing including training, access to land for growing, support for community food projects and promotion of local food. 

• Cookery Projects: Working with school children, adults and local communities to give people the skills and confidence to cook using fresh ingredients.

• Community Nutrition team: Qualified dietitians work in the community with families to prevent and address childhood obesity. The team also delivers adult weight-management programmes in group and one-to-one settings, combining nutrition, physical activity and behaviour change to achieve ongoing, healthy lifestyles.

• Love Food Hate Waste Campaign: An education and skills programme that aims to reduce the amount of food waste we produce through meal planning, using leftovers and composting. 


The Food Partnership is grateful to its current funders for supporting this work: NHS Brighton & Hove, the Big Lottery Fund's Local Food Fund, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and Brighton & Hove City Council.


The Food Partnership is located at the Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton BN1 1YD
