What we do

The 6 Themes of the Newcastle Good Food Plan

Food Newcastle is currently driving forward the aims of the Newcastle Good Food Plan, which was launched earlier this year.

The plan which was developed by the partnership is based on the 6 key issues of the Sustainable Food Cities Framework.

Themed delivery groups, with multi sector representation, have been set up to drive the actions forward for each theme.

Theme 1: Diet-related ill health and access to food

Theme 2: Good food for all – tackling food poverty

Theme 3: Building community food knowledge, skills, resources and projects

Theme 4: Strengthen the local sustainable food economy

Theme 5: Transforming catering and food procurement

Theme 6: Environmental sustainability – reducing waste and the ecological footprint of the food system

The Newcastle Good Food Plan will be reviewed at annual Food Newcastle Partnership events in line with developments from the Themed Sub-group action plans. Priorities in the good food plan will be revised and developed as necessary.


Currently there is steady developments in all areas, the work continues to evolve and advance and the Good Food Plan will be updated accordingly to reflect progress.


Looking forward Food Newcastle will be focussing on:

– Providing continued to support for the development of the sub groups

– Food Newcastle will apply for the Sustainable Food Cities Bronze Award this year; this is designed to recognise and celebrate the success of those places taking a joined up, holistic approach to food and that are achieving significant positive change on a range of key food issues.

– Continue to build on and strengthen the wider Food Newcastle Partnership
