Bring pots and spoons to make some noise for for our right to good food!

On Sunday 14th October 2018 there will be a march in London calling for a post-Brexit agriculture policy that guarantees good food and good farming in the UK!

Anyone who grows, distributes, prepares or eats food – together all  have a stake in the food system. Whether you are worker in the food system, parents wanting affordable, nutritious food for your children, or you want to support farming that produces good food and works in harmony with the Earth, this is a critical time for us all to come together. It’s the biggest opportunity to make our voices heard as the future of our food system in the UK is decided.

The Good Food March is being organised at this critical time in response to the first draft of the Agriculture Bill. Throughout October the Agriculture Bill will be debated in Westminster and will be finalised at the end of 2018. The final Agriculture Bill will impact what happens to our food and farming system in the UK for the next 50 years.  It is crucial that calls for a better food system are heard by to those negotiating our future.

“As we leave the European Common Agricultural Policy, the UK agriculture bill will determine the future of our food system for the next 50 years or more. If you want that food system to support farmers to produce environmentally friendly, healthy, affordable food for everyone, please join us.”

-Jyoti Fernandes, The Landworkers Alliance
