About the Food Foundation
The Food Foundation is a young, dynamic, impactful and charity working to influence food policy to support healthy and sustainable diets. Working at the interface between academia and policy makers (parliamentarians, civil servants, local authorities) and businesses, we use a wide range of approaches to make change happen including events, publications, media stories, social media campaigns and multi-stakeholder partnerships. We also work directly with citizens to ensure their lived experience is reflected in our policy proposals.
