As you may already know, Bristol Food Network have been successful in our funding application to the Sustainable Food Cities Network – meaning that for at least the next 12 months, Bristol will have its own Sustainable Food Cities Coordinator.

Jacqui Reeves – formerly of CEO of FareShare South West – will be starting work on the project in early June, looking at what Bristol might look like as a ‘Gold’ standard Sustainable Food City, and at what we need to do in order to reach that Gold standard.

Jacqui says: “I am very excited to be taking on the new role of Bristol’s Sustainable Food Cities Coordinator. My main role is to highlight all the incredible, amazing and inspirational food projects going on in the city, to introduce projects to each other for collaboration and to identify possible gaps. Plus I’ll be supporting a city-wide or individual funding applications, and a resource hub. All this will enable ‘Going for Gold’ status for Bristol. This is a fantastic opportunity for our city to become a more cohesive, coordinated sustainable food city. I look forward to a meeting with you all.
