Food heroes


Our world produces enough food for everyone. Yet every night, 1 billion people go to bed hungry. That's not right. But there are people doing their bit to make a difference right now.

People who change the world deserve to be recognised. And that's where you come in...

We want you to nominate your local food heroes - the people on the food frontline in your area, whose stories could inspire others. From allotment legends to Fairtrade fanatics, we want you to uncover them, so we can celebrate their achievements.

Big up the people who are taking action to build a better food system, and you'll help bring about powerful change too. So nominate your local food hero today:
