Louise Delmege writes the latest blog about Bristol Good Food 2030’s dedication to fostering a sustainable food system, emphasising transparency and collaboration as essential drivers for meaningful change. Through an open invitation to explore the just-launched Impact Tracker and engage in partnerships, Louise underscores the collective responsibility in addressing systemic challenges towards a more equitable food future. 

We’re thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey towards a more sustainable and equitable food system: the launch of our Impact Tracker! At Bristol Good Food 2030, we’ve been hard at work analysing data, assessing outcomes, and reflecting on our efforts to shape a better food future for our beloved city.

But before you dive in, we want to emphasise something crucial: the Partnership’s work is just one piece of the puzzle. We understand that the outcomes we see are not solely influenced by our initiatives. There are broader systemic issues at play that we must acknowledge and address collectively. It’s about recognising that while our efforts are significant, they’re not isolated from the larger context of societal, economic, and environmental factors. 

In essence, our Impact Tracker isn’t just about highlighting the evolution of Bristol’s food system; it’s about embracing transparency, accountability, and a holistic understanding of the challenges we face. By sharing our progress openly, we invite you to join us in a deeper conversation about how we can drive meaningful change together. 

So, what’s our call to action? 

Firstly, we urge you to explore the Impact Tracker and familiarise yourself with the data and insights we’ve gathered. Understanding the landscape is the first step towards catalysing change. 

Secondly, we recognise that tackling complex issues requires collaboration. That’s why we’re extending a hand to our community, inviting partnerships and collaborations. Whether you’re a local organisation, a business, a researcher, or an individual who is passionate about food justice, we believe in the power of coming together to amplify our impact. 

Thirdly, we can’t ignore the importance of resources. Funding plays a crucial role in sustaining and expanding Bristol Good Food 2030’s initiatives. If you or your organisation are able to contribute financially, we invite you to invest in our shared vision of a thriving, inclusive food system for Bristol. 

Lastly, let’s talk about data. Data is the backbone of informed decision-making. We’re calling for collaboration to enhance data collection, analysis, and the development of meaningful indicators. Together, we can ensure that our actions are guided by evidence and that we’re continuously learning and adapting to achieve our goals effectively. 

As we celebrate the progress captured on our Impact Tracker, let’s also renew our commitment to the journey ahead. Let’s challenge ourselves to think bigger, to dream bolder, and to act with purpose. Together, we can create a future where good food is not just a privilege but a fundamental right for all. 

Thank you for being part of this movement. Together, let’s nourish Bristol and build a better world, one bite at a time. 

With gratitude and determination, 

Bristol Good Food 2030
