Feed Britain Better
Feed Britain Better is a youth-led coalition where Bite Back convened leading NGOs to bring young people together with the leaders of the food system to commit to change.
Bite Back 2030 set it up to generate bold new solutions for a fairer, healthier food system during and beyond COVID-19. A group of truly inspiring young people presented these at the Feed Britain Better Youth Summit on 15th October 2020. We continue to have positive follow-up with business and our young people.
Trade deals could be the biggest thing to change the game for child health in decades. And if we aren’t careful, they could be really bad news for the food we eat. In September 2020, Bite Back kicked off its #SaveOurStandards campaign together with Jamie Oliver and other prominent campaigners, resulting in almost 50k people writing to their MPs to save our food standards in future trade deals and our #SaveOurStandards hashtag reached over 11 million people.
The 9pm TV Watershed
