Sustainable Food Partnership

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is working to establish a Sustainable Food Partnership for the District. The Sustainable Food Partnership will aim to raise public awareness of the benefits of sustainable food; tackle food poverty and diet related ill-health; create a vibrant and diverse food economy; transform and revitalise supply chains; and address the impact on Climate Change through sustainable food and farming to food waste.

Food is not only at the heart of some of our greatest problems from obesity and diet-related ill-health to food poverty and waste, climate change and biodiversity loss but it is also a vital part of the solution. Sustainable Food Partnerships bring together statutory and community organisations, businesses and academics to create a local sustainable food system to redress these issues at a local level and promote healthy and sustainable food for all.

Name our Sustainable Food Partnership

The Sustainable Food Partnership is a collaborative initiative that brings together individuals, businesses, community groups, and organisations in the Fermanagh and Omagh district.

It focuses on promoting and implementing sustainable practices within the local food system. By fostering partnerships and engaging stakeholders across various sectors, the goal is to address challenges and capitalise on opportunities related to food, such as reducing food poverty, tackling obesity, supporting local producers, and promoting healthier, more sustainable food choices.

The partnership seeks to create a cohesive framework that amplifies existing best practices, identifies new initiatives, and encourages innovation to build a resilient and environmentally conscious local food ecosystem.

A good name matters: it’s not just about standing out; it’s about being memorable and capturing the essence of what we’re about.  Our Sustainable Food Partnership needs a name that is straightforward but catchy, something that says we’re here to make a positive impact on local food.  This partnership is all about collaboration, innovation, and creating a more sustainable future for our community. Let’s find a name that reflects our shared commitment to a better, greener food landscape in Fermanagh and Omagh.

Please be aware that the submission of names for the Sustainable Food Partnership does not guarantee selection, and the council reserves the right to make the final decision on the chosen name. Participants below the age of 18 must obtain parental or guardian permission to submit entries for the Sustainable Food Partnership naming promotion.
