74% of councils have declared a climate emergency, yet few are taking steps to reduce emissions embedded within our food system. We are demanding that councils:
- Go fully plant-based in any future catering for meetings & events
- Increase the number of plant-based meal options in schools or insist catering suppliers do so (if an education authority)
- Promote & normalise plant-based eating to residents
Our most recent win was in December 2021, when Oxfordshire County Council passed a motion committing to go fully plant-based in meetings & events and to recommend more plant-based options in schools. In May 2022, we supported a councillor to successfully pass a similar motion at Cambridge City Council.
We have people running this campaign in over 40 local authority areas around the UK and we expect to see more councils go plant-based in 2022!
