What we do

The Belfast Food Network aims to promote our thriving food economy, built on healthy, fresh, local and seasonal produce – organic whenever possible – to make Belfast a Sustainable Food City.

During the covid pandemic BFN has been busy tackling many of the food related issues that are affecting our communities, environment and economy. We helped people to build their food knowledge and skills by turning our Nourish programme into an online resource, provided micro grants to 27 small businesses and food initiatives to help them adapt their business models to covid, recruited 35 veg advocates for Peas Please in Northern Ireland, who will help to increase people’s veg consumption in their local areas. 

We are also running a sustainable fish campaign with Ulster Wildlife to promote sustainable fish through procurement; a healthy start campaign with Food NI and the Food Foundation (funded by Food Power) to increase the number of shops that accept the vouchers and secure added value in–store; providing support to the Now Project through Ready, Healthy Eat, to increase understanding of sustainable food in the organisation, with service users and customer base.
