Bridport Food Matters (BFM) is a collaborative enterprise involving several existing community food stakeholders.
BFM aims to build resilience, mutual aid and a supportive and sharing economy, primarily through the promotion of food equality and cooperation, for the benefit of the people and families of Bridport and its surrounding area.
Bridport Food Matters’ Mission is to work together to build community, health, economic and environmental resilience; sustaining and supporting Bridport area people and families through food provision, activities, information and education.
BFM was originally founded in 2019 by Seeding Our Future working in partnership with Bridport Local Food Group and Transition Town Bridport, as a communication and information network which aims to be a catalyst for positive change and a provider of information on food matters in the Bridport area. Our priorities included: increasing local production and demand, affordable access, healthy eating, sustainable cultivation methods, and food security in response to climate change.
BFM is widening its scope, becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, with various forms of membership, and creating a Community Food Hub space in the town centre.
If you’d like to support us, please sign up for our newsletter, post your food news on the Facebook Group, and attend our events, spread the word about BFM among your contacts, and contact us if you can get involved in any way. We plan to organise some pop-up activities soon.
