Food Systems in European Cities (FoodE)

Project Details


The development of resilient and sustainable food systems within urban centres and rural areas surrounding cities is vital to foster food security and nutrition, as well as economic development and sustainable natural resources management. Citizen-led city region food systems (CRFS) can prove useful. The EU-funded FoodE project aims to accelerate the growth of CRFS by bringing together local initiatives across Europe and co-developing and disseminating new tools to promote and bolster citizen-driven food systems. The project will encourage local communities to work in line with the EU sustainable development goals. It will define the operational methodology for the assessment of CRFS and promote cooperation between European CRFS.
