Hull Food Partnership

The Hull Food Partnership is open to everyone working across all sectors of Hull’s food systems and culture.  They have a vision of Hull as a Sustainable Food City. The Partnership is hosted by Rooted in Hull.

Hull Food Partnership has been having wide-ranging consultations with organisations, businesses and individuals, to tackle key issues we face around food in Hull. As a result they have developed the Hull Food Charter, which sets out aspirations for Hull as a sustainable food city, addressing food poverty, better access to fresh and healthy produce, increasing food skills and knowledge and supporting sustainable local food production, procurement and enterprise.

After a successful launch event in June 2018, the Hull Food Partnership is encouraging individuals and organisations to sign up to the Hull Food Charter

The Growers Network links many food growing projects in Hull

 Hull Harvest Feastival is a shared community meal held in the autumn, using surplus local grown produce from allotments and food growing projects. The fresh ingredients are cooked by local chefs and a delicious meal is served, free of charge. Held in Hull City Centre, Hull Harvest Feastival happened in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The 2017 Feastival took place as part of the Freedom Festival and this year will take place  at the Freedom Festival on Sun 2 Sept 2018 at 3pm. Now rebranded as Freedom Feastivalit is still a shared community meal using local produce from allotments and community gardens harvested and prepared by volunteers.
