Learn more about FoodCLIC

FoodCLIC brings together actors from policy, science, business, and civil society, including FEBA, to support the development of integrated urban food policies – policies that facilitate the accessibility and availability of healthy and sustainably produced food for all people and in particular for vulnerable communities. Why is this important? Europe’s urban areas face significant challenges to ensure the availability and consumption of healthy, affordable, safe and sustainably produced food. And promising initiatives taken by municipalities often fail to become embedded in the wider policy context, and to reach food-deprived and vulnerable groups. FoodCLIC, an EU-funded project that runs from 2022 to 2027, connects people and policies from different sectors for an integrated approach to transform urban food environments and food systems.

Urban areas across the globe face hurdles in providing healthy, affordable, safe, and sustainable food for all. Municipal initiatives often struggle to embed within wider policy contexts, leaving food-deprived and vulnerable groups underserved. FoodCLIC aims to bridge the gap and bring promising initiatives into the mainstream, reaching everyone, especially those facing systemic barriers.

FoodCLIC is actively supporting the transformation of urban food environments in eight committed city-regions: City of Aarhus, City of Amsterdam , Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB), Berlin (Ernährungsrat Berlin), Budapest (ESSRG), Brasov (Transilvania University of Brasov), Lisbon (Cascais Ambiente EMAC, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa), and Lucca (Università di Pisa).
