Bury Food Partnership

Bury Food Partnership

The Bury Food Partnership is a collaboration of partners interested in healthier and sustainable food.

A key output of the Bury Food Strategy was to establish our Partnership to drive the food agenda forward, delivering on the action plan.  Partners have been actively engaged since 2020, with quarterly meetings held since March 2021. The meetings are informal, encouraging participation and sharing best practice. 

“It is a space to connect with professionals and community organisations/ individuals across Bury and Greater Manchester to challenge and help shape the way Bury sources and provides food for all.” Lucy Fitzsimon (Sports Development Officer).

The Partnerships role is to deliver the Bury Food Strategy and Action Plan, driving forward healthy and sustainable food projects in the area.

We are immensely proud of how much has been achieved by the Bury Food Partnership in a short amount of time and amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Meetings evolve as new partners come on board, and for the first time in Bury we have an active core partnership of members focusing on the food agenda, collectively working on our action plan. 

Bury has become the latest place to win a prestigious Sustainable Food Places award. The award recognises Bury Food Partnerships work to promote healthy, sustainable and local food and to tackle some of today’s greatest social challenges, from food poverty and diet-related ill-health to the disappearance of family farms and the loss of independent food retailers.

“Bury Food Partnership has shown just what can be achieved when creative and committed people work together to make healthy and sustainable food a defining characteristic of where they live. While there is still much to do and many challenges to overcome, Bury Food Partnership has helped to set a benchmark for the other 80+ members of the UK Sustainable Food Places Network to follow. We look forward to working with them over the months and years ahead to transform Burys food culture and food system for the better.” (Leon Ballin, Sustainable Food Places Programme Manager).

Councillor Tamoor Tariq, Bury’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “We are immensely proud of how much has been achieved by the Bury Food Partnership, in a short amount of time and amid a global pandemic, to drive forward our Food Strategy in its mission to Eat, Live, Love Food.”
