Who we are

The Arun and Chichester Food Partnership has the mission to make good food accessible to all.

The partnership encompasses a wide network of stakeholders in the local food system, led by a steering group of voluntary and community sector organisations and local authority representatives. This network is always growing but we recognize the need to involve more people to achieve our goals, and one of the ways we are doing this is via our local community food networks and groups.

The Arun and Chichester Food Partnership is a member of Sustainable Food Places, which brings together a network of food partnerships across the UK. We are also members of Feeding Britain, who support UK partnerships to pilot new approaches for solving hunger.

There are two part-time Development Officers for the Arun & Chichester Food Partnership, hosted by Citizens Advice Arun & Chichester.
