Bristol Bites Back Better is a campaign that gives people the power to make our city and communities stronger through food, now and into the next decade.

The campaign aims to give everyone the means to participate in our city’s food system, beyond their weekly shop. It will provide individuals, communities, organisations and food businesses with a way to access information, share ideas, and hear stories from across the city about food.
