Feeding Folkestone is a network of solidarity and collective action for food growers, producers and activists in Folkestone and the surrounding areas.

We exist to reconnect our community with the land, food and each other, to build a sustainable, resilient local food system that tackles the social and climate crises through education, food growing and sharing, with strategic partnerships that use time and money to do good.

Why is this needed?

Despite large organisational initiatives to challenge issues such as obesity, poor nutrition and lack of food education and Food Banks for those who can’t access food, child poverty in Folkestone has risen again for the 5th year running to over 30%. But we know that our community holds the power and knowledge to heal and ultimately feed itself.

What will it achieve?

The cook book is just the start of the conversation, it is an opportunity for all of us to think together about what kind of food future we want for Folkestone and the local area. It is the first step in sharing the amazing resources that are already here in this corner of the Garden of England.

Feeding Folkestone is an initiative led by Custom Food Lab (The Locavore Growing Project) and Kent Food Hubs Folkestone, in collaboration with local schools, food growers/producers, care homes, businesses and community organisations.
