Glasgow Food Summit

29 May 2019

How can Glasgow become a 'good food city'?

Today, Glasgow City Chambers will host a ‘food summit’ as part of the collective commitment to become a sustainable food city. The event will explore city-wide, holistic approaches to changing our food system in order to improve health, reduce food insecurity, build community resilience and reduce Glasgow’s impact on the environment.

The growing recognition nationally and internationally of the important contribution that our food system makes to climate change, population health and to local economies emphasises the importance and urgency of the development of a food strategy for Glasgow.

The event aims to build on the great work that is already established in Glasgow by bringing together a range of international, national and local experts and perspectives to explore the key aspects of a successful sustainable food system.
