About the London Food Programme

The London Food Programme is part of City Hall's Regeneration and Economic Development Policy Unit. This reflects the importance of food to London’s economy and its communities.


Good food can support better health outcomes, create decent jobs, protect the environment and build stronger communities.


The London Food Programme works with partners in the private, public and third sectors that represent various parts of London's food system, developing and delivering projects which use good food to improve the lives of Londoners.


Officers working on the programme also work closely with experts on the London Food Board and colleagues in the health, planningenvironment and volunteering teams. This ensures the programme complements the work taking place across City Hall.


The London Food Programme will support the implementation of the Mayor’s new London Food Strategy, published in December.


The London Food Programme is also a member of the Sustainable Food Cities network, which joins up with the work of food partnerships across the UK in addressing social, economic and environmental challenges within their food systems.
