Sustainable and resilient
food systems in France
and around the world
Ensure food security at the territorial level
The IPCC reports are clear: we must now adapt in order to continue to live together, preserve water and soil and be able to feed ourselves sustainably.
It is with this objective in mind that we have created the Let's Food association: to urge territories in France and around the world to be aware of the challenges of the 21st century and to ensure healthy, high-quality food for all, while preserving ecosystems, fauna and flora.
Solutions exist; they must be shared and spread to accelerate the transition within the territories and build their resilience towards the many challenges and terrible consequences of climate change.
TERRITORIAL FOOD POLICIES
We help local authorities in France and abroad to co-construct sustainable territorial food policies. From the diagnosis to the implementation of a new multi-actor governance, we work closely with local stakeholders to identify the social, economic and environmental challenges of each aspect of the food system and together define the solutions that need to be implemented.
SOCIAL SECURITY FOR FOOD
In the face of the right to food being not effective for all, growing food insecurity, crises in the current agricultural model, but also in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic which is reflected in a sharp increase in the number of food insecure people, different territories are experimenting with models inspired by the Social Security for Food (SSF).
Experiment in Gironde
In the coontext of the global climate emergency, territories must cooperate at all costs to ensure food security for all: we support local authorities by helping them develop international, cross-border or territorial cooperation projects in order to preserve good community relations, develop sustainable local food policies together and enrich each other.
TRAINING AND CAPACITY BUILDING
We offer training to elected officials and local authority employees so that they have the arguments and tools they need to implement sustainable food policies on their territory.
We also intervene in universities to train future professionals in local planning and engineering to better integrate food issues.
STUDIES AND PUBLICATIONS
Based on our different territorial experiences and identification of initiatives, we also produce comparative studies on specific topics in order to highlight good practices and successful experiences: school canteens, public policies for food resilience, fight against food insecurity among students, etc.
Let's Food Ideas is a collaborative resource centre that brings together more than 400 food initiatives from France and elsewhere, led by local authorities, companies, associations, citizens and universities: ideas to share in order to find inspiration and spread good practices in our territories.
WHY LET'S FOOD
A territorial, systemic and multi-actor approach
Our interdisciplinary expertise has been built up over the years, in contact with territories and the local actors.
Local authorities are responsible for the wellbeing of their inhabitants and must set up transversal and efficient frameworks to facilitate dialogue and the integration of civil society actors in the definition of a new local, sustainable and inclusive food strategy.
