Partnership Organisation overseeing the delivery of the Glasgow City Food Plan
By Glasgow Food Policy Partnership (GFPP)
GFPP is a group of public, private and voluntary sector organisations who have come together with one specific objective. We believe that a fairer, healthier, more sustainable and resilient food system would make Glasgow an even better city to live in. We want #GoodFoodForAll and we believe that together we can make it happen.
We define ‘good food’ as food that is: vital to the quality of people’s lives in Glasgow. As well as being tasty, healthy, accessible and affordable, our food should be good for the planet, good for workers, good for local businesses and good for animal welfare. Everyone should know where their food comes from, and everyone should understand and celebrate the exciting variety of fresh, nutritious and affordable food available right on their doorstep. We care passionately about our communities, your well-being, and our environment.

Slow Food Glasgow believes a significant way to constructively address these societal issues is through education and positive engagement with healthy, nutritious food.
Our activities include influencing positive changes in social policy, building links between producers, chefs, businesses, academics and members of the public, and defending and promoting biodiversity and food heritage.
Slow Food education projects are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality.
We are a community based food project working in North East Glasgow. Our mission is to bring people together through growing, cooking and eating good food. We run a community garden, cooking club, weekly community meals, and a free community larder. We also work in partnership with a range of education providers to deliver cooking and growing workshops with local young people.
We are proud to be a charity that is accessible to all, and free from judgement or discrimination. All our Trustees come from varied backgrounds, with 75% from the local area. Our vision is to support people to flourish and realise their full potential by creating an environment for creative and recreational events. All our activities are accessible, not just physically but financially and democratically. All revenue is reinvested back into the charity to provide services tackling poverty and social isolation in the community.
